Advantis Projects in partnership with Chinese shipping major, COSCO Shipping, managed the movement of plant and machinery required for the project from the Port of Shanghai. The consignment of cargo of 7000 CBM (cubic meter), reached the Hambantota port on board a Multi-purpose vessel operated by COSCO Shipping, Advantis said in a media release.
This is the first break bulk cargo to arrive at the port of Hambantota post the recent transfer of operations to Hambantota International Port Group and Hambantota International Port Services.
Speaking on this occasion, Managing Director of COSCO Shipping Lines Lanka (Pvt) Ltd. Joe Meng said, “We are proud to be engaged in the movement of the first 10MW biomass power plant to Sri Lanka from Shanghai, China. It is indeed a great honour to contribute towards the green energy sector of Sri Lanka.”
The cargo was unloaded at site using Advantis Projects’ new 250T heavy lift crane and transported by land to the project site in Kalawaaragama aboard the logistics provider’s trailers.
Having worked on similar cargo movements both within Sri Lanka and around the world, Advantis Projects has extensive experience in managing large scale projects for the power and energy sector. Some of the noteworthy projects in recent times include handling the ship to shore ground logistics of windmill cargo for the successful installation of 16 wind turbines in Pallali, the transportation of four 100 ton diesel engine generators from the Horana BOI zone to Lahore, Pakistan and the relocation of the 24MW Lakdhanavai power plant from Sapugaskanda to Nyala, Sudan.
