Tons of rain, mud, weak soil and heavy lifts of 128 tons – a beach landing operation in the Peruvian Jungle
A power plant including auxiliary equipment, parts and accessories from Rotterdam to the jungle of Iquitos in Peru – 7,582 frts incl. break-bulk, 70 x 40’ SOCs as well as 7 heavy lifts of 128 tons. Due to river draft the site in the jungle of Iquitos could only be reached via the Amazon River within a time span of three to four months a year – a tight time frame and challenging operation.
There was no suitable port for discharge in Iquitos; so the fully chartered seagoing vessel had to anchor in the middle of the Amazon River, with barges operating alongside.
