Panalpina delivers for Voith Hydro

July 31 - The staff of Panalpina Vienna's project department have managed a very challenging shipment from St. P

The shipments consisted of generators and turbine parts desitined for the construction of a hydroelectric power station. The journey involved precarriage by heavy duty vehicle from St. Pölten to the port of Linz on the Danube, while the general cargo was delivered by truck to Antwerp.

To avoid the need for interim warehousing of the heavy components, the latter were loaded directly onto the barge from the truck, and then, when they reached Antwerp, directly from the barge to the ocean-going vessel.

Attention to detail in the scheduling of access, both in the port of Linz and in Antwerp, was crucially important to successful delivery of the power station components to the recipient in the port of Bandar Imam Khomeini on schedule.
