DAKO Worldwide Transport brought together experts from its offices in Germany, Senegal, Turkey and South Korea to move project cargo from South Korea to Senegal. The company said it moved a total of 5,500 freight tons of power plant equipment from Port of Masan in South Korea to Rufisque in Senegal. 

The main cargo consisted of twelve HRSG modules weighing anywhere between 138 to 150 tons and maximum lengths of up to 24 metres. Upon arrival in the Port of Dakar, DAKO took over the heavy lifts with its own Goldhofer heavy-duty-modules THP/SL for the transfer to the temporary storage area, before the transport to the job site.

Battling with the tight delivery schedule, DAKO enlisted the help of Monpe Heavy Haulage and its hydraulic trailer. The equipment was required to meet the tight delivery schedule needed to make sure the installation sequence of the HRSG Modules was complied with.

In addition to the transport of the modules and accessories, DAKO supported its client with the re-location of two transformers with single weights of 200 tons from the temporary storage area to the foundation within the job site.

The deliveries are enabling the construction of the 300 MW Cap Des Biches power plant. Once constructed, the facility will be the biggest power plant in the country. Already back in 2021, DAKO supported the energy infrastructure of Senegal with the delivery of the 120 MW Malicounda power plant.
