Sun shines for GLA

November 10 - South Africa based Global Logistics Alliance (GLA) has signed two important contracts to handle the transport of cargo for solar farms that are being built in the country - Kathu Solar Park and Ilanga CSP 1.

The Kathu Solar Park, situated in Kathu within the Northern Cape Province (approximately 1,050 km from Cape Town) is a 100 MW concentrated solar power (CSP) project which is scheduled for completion in the second half of 2018.

GLA has been appointed to Customs clear and deliver an estimated 2,000 x 40 ft containers, as well as dozens of oversize shipments (transformers, heat exchangers, steam turbines, and so on), including pieces weighing up to 350 tonnes, from the various ports of arrival to the site.

Ilanga CSP 1 is also a 100 MW CSP Project, located in Upington, Northern Cape (approximately 860 km from Cape Town). The cargo volumes to be Customs cleared and delivered for the Ilanga Plant will be very similar to those for Kathu Solar Park project.

The GLA team claims: "Having commenced the delivery of cargo to these two new solar plants, GLA have been the officially nominated agent for all of the completed and under construction CSP solar plants in South Africa - a fact we are very proud of! 

"These solar plants include: Bokpoort CSP Project; Ilanga CSP 1 (Karoshoek Consortium); Kathu Solar Park; KaXu Solar One; Khi Solar One; and Xina CSP South Africa.

"Freight management services for another five large photovoltaic solar plants have also been successfully completed by GLA in the past year."

GLA is a member of the Project Cargo Network (PCN) for South Africa.
