In the middle of the lockdown they have transported a total of 158 tons of cargo from Southern Chile to the Valparaiso Port
Integral Chile, a Coop member in Santiago, Chile, has moved over 150 tons of heavy machinery to be used for the construction of the Chacao Bridge, which will connect the big island of Chiloe with the mainland and is going to be the longest bridge in Latin America, with a length of almost 3 kilometres. In the words of Ms. Paula Salinas, the Commercial Development Analyst of Integral Chile, “We transported the heavy load from the South of Chile to the Port of Valparaiso which required a police escort.”
The last shipment weighed 150 tons and consisted of 1 Hydrohammer of 64 tons, 1 Sleeve of 62 tons, 2 Powerpacks of 10.5 tons each, and 1 x 20 SOC of 10 tons. Ms. Salinas further adds, “Despite the COVID-19 setback, our team is fully operational, and we are transporting all our cargo as usual thus keeping the foreign trade running. We are capable of continuing our operations even in total confinement and our team is committed to share projects with our fellow Coop members!”
Congratulations to Integral Chile for handling this important project!
