Blue Water expands in Kazakhstan
SKAKO Concrete A/S with headquarters in Funen, Denmark, is one of the strongest players in the concrete industry
Blue Water’s scope of the project includes transport of machinery and equipment for the concrete plant
Since January, Blue Water’s project department in Esbjerg has been involved in an exciting project for the upgrade of the Victoria Deep Water Terminal in North Greenwich, London. Blue Water secured the job via strong local relations between SKAKO and Blue Water Odense.
SKAKO Concrete A/S has been awarded the prestigious contract of delivering a complete concrete plant in Central London. The contract was awarded by Hanson UK, the largest supplier of ready-mix in the UK. The contract is the largest order for SKAKO in the past 20 years.
“Blue Water’s scope of the project includes transport of machinery and equipment for the concrete plant. The transports take place by curtain trailers and open trucks, with over-width, from Poland and Denmark to the UK. Furthermore, we are responsible for coordination with and notification of suppliers and the site management”, says Allan Dahl Leiberg, Operations Manager at Blue Water. “Until now, we have delivered around 50 of the 80 loads. The rest is expected to be delivered by August this year, and the plant will be installed and fully operational by the end of the year”.
“Having signed the contract with Hanson UK, for delivery of the biggest SKAKO project in recent years, it was important for us to choose a reliable and competent freight forwarder who would be able to handle the challenges in all project stages. As the project involves many special transports that require special attention, coordination of collection and delivery as well as handling the transport itself, it was of the utmost importance for SKAKO to have a close cooperation on this project."
"The reason for choosing Blue Water for the job was in particular our positive knowledge of the company's professional handling of previous transports as well as a competitive price for the total project”, says Carl-Christian Juul Jensen, Senior Project Manager, SKAKO Concrete A/S.
