Kita delivers for Turkish energy

August 8 - Turkey's Kita Logistics has delivered the components of a new 775 MW combined cycle power plant located in Denizli, Western Turkey, considered to be one of the two largest investments in the power industry to be transported in 2011.

Kita Logistics general manager Emre Eldener says: "We have moved a series of heavy lift pieces, weighing over 300 tonnes from April 2011. These included gas turbines, generators and transformers. Before moving these main units, we prepared detailed method statements, risk assessment studies, as well as extensive route surveys.

"The project site is located 300 km away from both Antalya and Izmir ports, therefore required some road work, such as temporarily removing traffic lights, speed sensors, a roundabout which prevents the turning of our 50 m long equipment including the tractors."
