Heavy generators from Finland to Mali by Steder Group

Steder Group, member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) for the Netherlands, finalized another impressive project in Africa. This time, 3 engine generators of 145 tons each and dimensions of 12,93 x 3,30 x 4,56 m were transported from Vaasa (Finland) to Ivory Coast. After trans-shipment in the port of Abidjan, the cargo was successfully discharged in Syama (Mali) a couple of days later.

All 3 engine generators were transported and installed within the agreed lead time of 60 days. An outstanding performance under difficult circumstances with COVID 19, a long lasting rain season, a military coup in Mali, civil unrest because of elections in Ivory Coast and custom strikes at the border.

With years of experience in project logistics all over Africa, Steder Group once more proved its ability to deliver the promise under difficult circumstances, with a satisfied customer as a result.
