Hansa Meyer moves Kidston Pumped Storage cargo
The Bremmen-based transportation, logistics and storage company, Hansa Meyer Global has moved project cargo to the Port of Townsville in Queensland, Australia.
The company’s regional office in Bangkok, together with its Australian partner J.H. Bachmann welcomed several conventional shipments destined for the Kidston Pumped Storage facility in far North Queensland.
After taking care of the FOB-coordination and the booking of the part charter from China to Townsville the cargo finally arrived at the Port of Townsville Limited. Around 2,200 FRT and several out of gauge (OOG) pieces weighing up to 45 tons were discharged directly from hook to get the first critical items with 570 cm width by the most economical way from Townsville to the site and without delay.
The remaining cargo sits at the temporary storage area at the port and will be delivered during the next few several days with a total of more than 30 truck loads in close coordination with the site to ensure a steady stream of cargo.
The Kidston Pumped Storage Hydro Project is the first pumped hydro project in Australia for over 40 years, the first to be developed by the private sector, and the third largest electricity storage device in the country.
