DAKO loads more Windpeshi wind farm equipment in Tuticorin
DAKO Worldwide Transport has continued its operations for the Windpeshi wind farm located in La Guajira, Colombia. The 205 MW wind farm is located in the northeast of Colombia and DAKO is heavily involved in logistics handling.
Following the unloading of the two vessels last month at the Puerto Brisa, DAKO has now completed the loading of approximately 36,000 freight tons of wind turbine equipment at Tuticorin in India. The equipment will also be heading to Puerto Brisa, Colombia.
The equipment in Tuticorin was loaded onboard SAL Heavy Lift’s Type 176 vessel, the multipurpose dry cargo ship Trina, strengthened for heavy cargo. The 2008-built 12,000 dwt vessel features two 700-ton cranes as well as a 350 ton crane. The AIS data shows the vessel is heading towards the Suez Canal currently.
The Windpeshi wind farm is one of 16 renewable projects being developed in La Guajira in the coming years. The wind farm will have a 205 MW capacity from 41 wind turbines. It is being developed by Enel Colombia’s unit, Enel Green power.
The project also includes a 200 MVA transformer, and a 97-kilometre high-tension transmission line that will deliver the produced power to the Cuestecitas substation from where it will be injected into the National Interconnected System.
