DAKO Worldwide Transport delivers a 165-ton genset to Fernheizwerk Neukölln
Freight forwarding specialist, DAKO Worldwide Transport recently completed a delivery of a 165-ton engine from Rostock to Berlin. The unit was delivered to the district heating supplier Fernheizwerk Neukölln from Caterpillar’s facility in Rostock.
The location of Fernheizwerk Neukölln’s facility in downtown Berlin, surrounded with various obstacles for such transport, demanded a detailed transport planning and coordination with the authorities, DAKO informed via its social media channels.
Cooperating with the client DAKO devised a plan to dismantle the genset into three componensts, (baseframe, engine and generator) to minimise the necessary civil works for the transport and to receive the transport permits.
Due to tight space conditions and height differences at the jobsite, the technical pre-planning for the reassembly of the genset in front of Fernheizwerk Neukölln’s facility and for the foundation delivery, played a fundamental part for the success for the project.
To perform this scope of work and to keep the tight schedule on track, DAKO contracted a 500 tons mobile crane and a gantry system. After a period intensive pre-planning, the transport, the reassembly and the foundation delivery were executed within five days.
