Spain-headquartered logistics provider Altius – part of Davila Group – has coordinated the first phase of transport for four steam separators from Spain bound for a nuclear power plant in France.

The first stage involved transporting the equipment by road over two nights to the port of Santander.

Due to the 5.82 m height of the convoy, the team had to navigate various obstacles including cables, traffic lights, bridges and traffic signs.

Once at the port, the units were loaded onto rolltrailers and moved onto a ro-ro ship bound for Rotterdam.

When the cargo arrives at Rotterdam, the second stage of the transport will begin, which will involve loading the cargo on a barge for onward delivery to France. It will then be transported 400 km overland to its final destination.
