Bolloré Logistics Laos recently partnered with Bolloré Logistics India to handle the transportation and delivery of all electro-mechanical plant and equipment of Andritz Compact Hydro to be used on site at the Houay Kapheu Hydro Power Plant. The operations were completed in mid-September of 2018.
With a capacity of 5 MW, the headworks of the Houay Kapheu Hydro Power Plant are located in Houay Kapheu river, being a 1st branch river of Sedon river, belonging to Xiengmai village, Lao Ngam district of Saravane province - South of Laos.
The cargo delivered - transported in various specific 20’ and 40’ containers from Ex Works India - included a crane, an horizontal shaft, a generator, a cylindrical pole, and a structure for the switch yard for a total weight of approximately 155 Tons – all shipped on a door-to-door basis.
Delivering under close escort to remote sites during the heavy rain period meant poor road conditions and sensitive light capacity bridge cross-overs; all which were managed successfully by the Bolloré Logistics teams that could count on their experience in such challenging situations.
The strength of Bolloré Logistics’ network, combined with custom-made service from an experienced and enthusiastic workforce, is the key to Bolloré Logistics Laos’ current success and future development.
