The photos in the full article linked below show a recent project transport handled by Waiver Logistics in Chile. The cargo consisted of a complete wind power system which started at Valparaíso Port and was delivered to Chile Chico over 2,100km away. Each tower section measured 22m long and the blades (23m diameter) were transported inside specially made 80′ containers. Also transported were the nacelles control cabins.

Juan M. Estay continues; “The journey involved transferring all the cargo into barges twice as there is no direct roads to the destination in the Southern tip of Chile. Another challenge was dealing with extremely cold temperatures, however, the project was completed safely and without incident or damage. The maps in the gallery below will give an idea of the distance covered.

Another photo in the full article shows the transporting of an 85tn transformer in Chile from Antofagasta to Taltal. In this project, we had to be very cautious due to loose dirt roads around the cooper mines.”
