Last shipment of heavy parts for the "ILO" project (Peru)



Last week ALTIUS successfully completed the transport of the last three 155-ton each Transformers, from the port of Ilo to the "Nodo Energético del Sur" construction site.

The vessel M/V BBC Amber was in charge of the sea voyage of these three Transformers together with the rest of the general cargo from Korea to Peru.

Our team working on-site had to face a strong groundswell that did not allow the start of unloading operations upon arrival of the vessel at the unloading port.

After detailed weather monitoring, a window of good sea conditions was found, so all the heavy pieces were unloaded from the ship over the course of a morning, fighting the remaining swell.

All transformers were directly received on land from the ship on conventional modular trailers and then transported by road to the project location.
