Heavy Lift Across the World

Bolloré powers through Indonesia

Bolloré Logistics Indonesia has handled the delivery of ten MAN engines for Wijaya Karya’s MPP IV gas engines power plant project.

Six MAN 18V51/60DF engines, weighing 315 tons (285.8 tonnes) each, were transported to two project sites on the island of Sumbawa in the West Nusa Tenggara province; four 219-ton (198.7-tonne) MAN 12V51/60 DF engines were transported to Maumere, East of Nusa Tenggara.

Bolloré Logistics was responsible for the mobilisation of a spacer barge, road surveys, and the installation of the engines.

In Maumere, Bolloré had to design a temporary jetty to offload the cargoes as the seabed was protected under legislation from the United Nations, meaning vessels were unable to anchor. Using the spacer barge, Bolloré was able to roll off the oversized cargoes without touching the seabed at all.

In addition to mobilising equipment to the remote islands to support the heavy transport operations, Bolloré Logistics was also responsible for the transport of eight transformers, ranging in weight from 43 to 79 tons (39 to 71.1 tonnes).
