Extreme deliveries

Caverns, ski slopes, rain forest – sometimes Nynas is faced with especially tough logistical challenges. This is particularly true of Lake Manapouri in New Zealand.

In this lake there is an underground hydroelectric power station that with an installed capacity of 850 MW is one of the biggest power stations in the country. Nynas supplied transformer oil to the facility back in 2011, and will now once more be transporting 160 tonnes of Nytro Gemini X.

“The oil is shipped in ISO tanks from Antwerp to Invercargill – one of the southernmost cities in the world – and then on by road to Manapouri. Once there, it is loaded onto barges, which go through a ten-kilometre long tailrace tunnel down to the power station’s machine hall, where the oil is pumped using extra-long hoses into the transformers,” says Candice Lewis, Sales Executive, Nynas Australia.
