The first heavy load destined for the Punta del Tigre combined cycle power plant departed from the port of Nueva Palmira, Uruguay last Friday 8th August.
The 24 axle line K25 hydraulic platform trailer towed & pushed by 2 units Mercedes Titan’s will carry the Gas Turbine weighing 185 ton over the 270 km route to the PowerStation located approximately 35 km from Montevideo. Part of the route has been purpose built by our team in Uruguay and it will take approximately 5 days to cover the complete distance. The overall duration of the project is expected to be 1,5 years with the bulk of heavy cargoes arriving early 2015. Well done to our Uruguayan organization!
