DAKO enabling Colombian energy projects’ construction
DAKO Worldwide Transport’s activity in South America has continued over the recent period with multiple shipments for ongoing power projects in Colombia.
The company recently received and unloaded power plant equipment at the Baranquilla Port for Genser Power’s Caño Sur project in the Amazonas Basin in Colombia. The motor generators and other parts were for the thermoelectric project which will have an installed capacity of 32 MW and will be located in the municipality of Puerto Gaitán, Meta. The equipment was ferried to the Baranquilla Port by Spliethoff’s D-Type multipurpose vessel Danziegergracht.
Simultaneously, DAKO started receiving first components for a 205 MW wind farm located in the northeast of Colombia for which the company is deeply involved in the logistic handling.
The company unloaded the first two out of a total of ten charter vessels at Puerto Brisa for the Windpeshi Wind Farm located in La Guajira, Colombia. The vessel chartered for the job was G2 Ocean’s 2012-built L-Class multipurpose vessel, Start Livorno.
While the components are safely transferred and stored at the laydown area, DAKO’s wind team is currently busy in India loading another charter vessel for the same project.
