Steder Transports Hydropower Equipment Across Ethiopia
Bulldozers were used to prepare remote roads for heavy cargoes
Steder Group Djibouti has delivered power equipment from Djibouti to an Ethiopian hydropower plant site.
Steder Group Djibouti loaded the heavy cargoes on its trailers in the port of Djibouti from a chartered heavy-lift vessel. From there, the journey to Genale Dawe Hydro Power project site covered about 1,500 kilometers across Ethiopia over 14 days. The route included poor road conditions that limited travel to 25 kilometers a day and required a bulldozer to prepare the roads for the heavy loads.
The shipment included a 121-ton piece of equipment, along with two other pieces that weighed 83 tons each, Cargo Equipment Experts said in a statement on behalf of its member.
The jobsite was located 700 kilometers southeast of Addis Ababa in the Genale Dawa River Basin.
