Volga Shipping Company has completed the transportation of equipment for a windfarm under construction in Kazakhstan.

Volga Shipping Company JSC and Volgo-Baltic Logistic LLC (a subsidiary of Volga Shipping Company) have completed the delivery of equipment for the construction of a wind farm in Kazakhstan under the order of ISS Global Solutions GmbH.

In the middle of May, components for wind generators, namely core equipment from the German port of Brake and blades from the Polish port of Swinoujscie, were shipped to the Caspian Sea by Neva-Leader 4 of Project RSD49. The cargo of over 6,300 cubic metres (freight tonnes) including 66.4-metre long blades was successfully delivered to the port of Aktau in Kazakhstan in the middle of June.

“In view of the customer needs, a sea-going ship with an optimal tonnage was chosen to ensure the most functional allocation of cargo taking into consideration the useful capacity of cargo holds. That approach allowed for the reduction of cargo owner’s transport costs per cargo unit. As part of the package of services, specialists of Volga Shipping Company JSC and Digital Marine Technologies LLC developed a project for securing the oversize equipment on the ship.”
