Hareket Heavy Lifting & Transportation has handled the delivery of components for the Turakurgan combined-cycle power plant in Uzbekistan.
In total, Hareket transported 7,408 tonnes of cargo, made up of 42 items of equipment including a gas turbine, steam turbine, generator, transformer and a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG), to the new plant, which is located in Nemengan province, 280 km east of Uzbekistan's capital city, Tashkent. The heaviest unit was a 255-tonne transformer.
There were significant challenges to the overland transport, which required cooperation from the Uzbekistan General Directorate of Highways. One of the challenges required Hareket to by-pass a direct route to the power plant via the Kamchik Tunnel due to its height restrictions.
According to Hareket, the transport operation from the Kamchik Pass is the first heavy-duty operation in this region.
Meanwhile, Hareket has also been working on the Cameroon Douala Japoma Stadium project, which is being built by Yenigün Construction and will be used during the Africa Cup of Nations football championship.
At the project site, Hareket has been responsible for lifting steel materials, which have been shipped to Cameroon from Turkey. To lift the components, which vary in weights, Hareket has deployed mobile cranes with lifting capacities ranging from from 35 to 400 tonnes.
The works, which started in February 2018, are planned to be completed by March 2019.
