The project spanned 16 months, with components sourced from nine countries across the globe and delivered to Turkey using vessels, barges and SPMTs. The largest piece measured 57.9 m x 3.6 m x 4.1 m.  

“The project was moving smoothly until a surge in Covid-19 cases caused industry delays,” said C.H. Robinson. “This included one of the charter vessels being held up outside of [South] Korea for three to four days until the entire crew could be tested for the virus.

“Additionally, the team had to work quickly in a congested logistics market to ensure a vessel out of Italy sailed before the permits expired,” said the company.
