Heavy transport company Laninco, based in Costa Rica, has moved cargo weighing a total of 2,800 tonnes from Port Caldera to Las Pailas in Guanacaste Province, in North-Western Costa Rica.

The cargo consisted of 75 tonne condensers, which measured 17 metres long, and 65 tonne separators, measuring 12.5 m long. Other cargo units weighed up to 60 tonnes each. The units were moved for the Geothermal Binary Power Plant.

The charter shipment handled weighed 1,600 tonnes, a company spokesperson said. Including several other container cargo, the total weight moved by Laninco for the project was 2,800 tonnes.

For the transportation from Port Caldera to the site in Las Pailas, Laninco used low-bed trailers. Despite challenges along the route, such as weak and low bridges, the cargo was delivered on time.
