Breakbulk firm Thocomar Shipping Agency has completed a quartet of projects in Senegal, moving power components and vehicles via Dakar.
The largest of the projects involved transport of components from India to Dakar for a coal power plant. From Dakar the cargo was moved by road to the project site on low-bed trailers which involved very bumpy and sandy roads.
A further 81 tonnes of power equipment was also shipped from Qingdao in China to Dakar, measuring 306 cubic meters. The consignment include a exhaust gas boiler and a large plywood box of ancillary equipment.
The final two projects involved a shipment of vehicles for the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali, or MINUSMA, and equipment for Industrie Chimique du Senegal, a local fertiliser plant.
Thocomar is a member of breakbulk association the Project Cargo Network. The network reports that it has collaborated with more than 90 industry exhibitions over the past 12 months.
