Last week ALTIUS successfully completed shipment of the last three Transformers for the Ilo Project, each weighing 151 tons, from Ilo Port to final site at “Nodo Energético del Sur”.
The three Transformers were transported on the vessel MV BBC Amber, together with the rest of break-bulk cargo, from Korea to Peru.
Our on-site team was faced with a strong groundswell that made it impossible for the vessel to be offloaded at first arrival.
Careful monitoring of weather conditions revealed a window of favorable sea conditions. The heavy equipment was then offloaded taking advantage of this window within one morning, despite the remaining swell.
All three Transformers were placed directly from the vessel onto conventional trailer trucks, to be transported by road to final Project site.
