Cement Plant for Bolivia

DAKO WORLDWIDE TRANSPORT GMBH organized jointly with their Bolivian heavy transport partner INGENERIA DE TRANSPORTES the transport of all heavy lifts and bulky pieces for a new cement plant built in Yacuces / Bolivia from incoming heavy lift carrier in Arica / Chile via the Andes (up to 4800 m height) to the final destination in the province of Santa Cruz / Bolivia.

For the transport of the cement mill with a weight of 140 tons and dimensions of 1600 x 500 x 500 cm a 3-D animation for the passing of a critical 180° curve was made prior to the transport. The total distance from the port of Arica to the jobsite in Santa Cruz / Bolivia was 1800 km and so far the cement mill is the heaviest piece ever transported on this route.

The execution of the transport in 2015 was done to the entire satisfaction of the Chinese suppliers as well as the Brazilian project owners.
