Turk Heavy Transport have been continuously involved in an ongoing project of Hyundai Heavy Industries for the Electricity and Water Authority in Bahrain.
They have provided complete port-to-door logistics solutions including barge & road permissions, escort arrangements as well as road-works along the route to make the passage of trucks possible. The cargo consisted of a total of 8 transformers with different capacities, the biggest being 3 x 200tn (400kva).
All of the transformers were received on a 4 file Nicolas hydraulic low-bed at KBS Port in Bahrain before being placed in temporary storage. At a later date, the transformers were reloaded onto a barge (RO/RO) and shipped to a private Jetty where they were offloaded and transported to their final destination. To complete the operations, a total of 4 trips of RO/RO barge were required and the unloading operations at the site were performed using a jack-and-skidding system.
