EGL Put its mark in CAIRO WEST power plant
One more project accomplished by EGL subsidiary of Kadmar Group
On 10th September 2018, it was announced that Egyptian Global Logistics, known as EGL subsidiary of Kadmar Group, had won the bid of transporting 6 heavy transformers from Alexandria/ El-Dekhila Port to Cairo-West site.
Project is still on-going but EGL managed to complete the transport operation of the first transformer weighting 60 tons to the power plant site in November 2018. The transportation process was not smooth as expected as the site located 20 km from Central Cairo and was in congested area. One of the biggest challenges was to coordinate with related authorities such as an escort, a national company for road services and an electricity company for power lines.
Through engineering solutions, EGL succeed to reduce and overcome obstacles and delivered a transformer to the site on time.

- 1 X Transformer Main Body

3) Customs clearance
4) Manage all permits related to transportations from port to site.
5) Assign safe and good parking area (during transportation process) with some activities of civil work
