We are pleased to approve PCN representation in Mozambique with Globo Distribuidora Lda. Established in 2008, their head office is located in Maputo with branches in Beira and Nacala. Their ongoing clients include FUNAE (National Energy Fund); MCT (Ministry of Science and Technology); and ANE (National Roads Administration).
Last month, Globo Distribuidora loaded several heavy machines at Maputo Port and transported them to the Corrumane Dam (a distance of 115km) where a Belgian company, Denys Engineers & Contractors BV, is building a water supply pipeline for the Greater Maputo Area. The work on the pipeline started immediately and will take around 6 months to build. Once complete, it will reach 93kms long.
One machine, the ‘Trencher GW’ weighed 70tns and Globo Distribuidora faced a particular challenge to pass over a metal bridge near the final destination of the dam site. João Chiboleca (Managing Director) explains; “In order to cross the bridge, we had to offload the Trencher GW from the trailer to reduce the weight and meet the metal bridge’s limitations. We then had to use another truck crane to uplift the low-bed trailer after the machine was loaded again at the other side. This was also made difficult due to the poor terrain in the area.”
Despite the challenges faced, a well done job completed safely and successfully with a smooth delivery! If any PCN members have any requirements in Mozambique, Globo Distribuidora have the experience and capabilities to execute any job.
