Platetrade has coordinated the discharge operation of a turbocharger, destined for the Nestor Kirchner gas pipeline, in Bahía Blanca, Argentina.


The shipment comprised 60 packages, including heavy lift cargo weighing 45 tonnes and 650 tonnes respectively. Platetrade positioned special trailers next to the vessel ready to receive the cargoes and transport them to Salliqueló.

The Nestor Kirchner gas pipeline is one of the largest projects in Argentina. The first phase of the project includes a pipeline from Vaca Muerta in the Neuquen province to La Pampa. The second phase is now under way and will supply gas from Patagonia to the Misiones province in northeast Argentina. 

This is the second turbocharger Platetrade has transported for the project.

Platetrade is a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC).
