CEMEX Dominicana requested our collaboration in a project linked to the implementation of a cement plant in its facilities at San Pedro de Macorís. In this sense, we are very proud to have provided the services of customs management and transportation of goods (regular, dangerous and oversized).
Additionally, we contribute in streamlining the process of exemption, evaluation and adaptation of routes, plus the management of the necessary permits, always adhering to the strictest standards of quality and safety. CEMEX is one of the main companies in generating added value to the construction industry in the Dominican Republic, generating 600 direct jobs and more than 2,000 indirect jobs.
CEMEX Dominican Republic has an annual production capacity of 2.4 million tons. It has a cement plant in San Pedro de Macorís, ten concrete plants in different points of the national geography; two aggregate quarries mines in San Pedro de Macorís and Bainsa, San Cristóbal; and a plaster mine in Las Salinas, Barahona.
Leader of the cement and concrete markets, in the Dominican Republic CEMEX is the main importer of cement in the Caribbean.
The MINUSTAH / Japan project consisted of importing and transporting equipment from the Self Defense Forces from Port-au-Prince, Haiti, to Caucedo. After a process of sanitation and cleaning, they are placed in storage as temporary cargo and exported to Japan.
We work in the planning of all logistics for the import and export of vehicles, ground transport, route evaluation, customs management, contracting and adaptation of warehouse, personnel and security service.
In October 2012, we offered our services to the Stabilization Mission of theUnited Nations Organization in Haiti (MINUSTAH).
The United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti was established on June 1, 2004,under resolution 1542 with the objective of supporting this country when President Bertrand Aristides was exiled from Haiti.
Then, after the devastating earthquake of January 12, 2010, where 220,000 people died, including 96 UN soldiers, the National Council decided to increase the overall levels of MINUSTAH for the country’s rapid recovery efforts.
The aid offered by Japan to the neighboring country of Haiti rules since 2006; after the last earthquake of January 2010, Japan reinforced its aid and sent troops to perform reconstruction tasks and medical care work.
Wärtsilä, a leading company in the manufacture of diesel and natural gas engines and solutions for power plants, signed a contract in 2010 to supply two double-fuel engines for a 16.8 MW power plant in Los Orígenes. This high-performance electricity generator shall employ the use of natural gas, replacing the liquid fuels used in the past.
The Dominican Republic has a terminal for the importation of liquefied petroleum gas, owned by AES Dominicana, a subsidiary of AES Corporation, a global electricity company headquartered in the USA. The company AES uses LPG to feed a generating plant on its property adjacent to the terminal; the existence of a surplus in its production capacity has urged it to venture into other means of distribution.
Los Orígenes is a company with specific purposes established to manage the energy generation project of César Iglesias. The production of this thermoelectric plant is intended to strengthen the company’s agricultural and livestock production.
For the installation of Los Orígenes, the company Wärtsilä hired us for the customs management and transportation of 1,000 containers, of 38,000 m3 for both stages, 24 engines of 300ton each.
In 2009, Dominican International Forwarding initiated the planning process for the development of the Fluor – Hatch project that contributes to the construction of the Pueblo Viejo Dominicana Corporation project. They contracted engineering procurement, construction and management (EPCM).
We were able to collaborate with the Fluor – Hatch EPCM project, which consisted of the import, export, customs management and ground transportation of a 380,000 m3 cargo of all types of merchandise: in containers, loose, oversized and dangerous.
Fluor is an engineering company that offers engineering, contracting, construction and maintenance services. This company collaborated in the construction phase of the Pueblo Viejo Dominicana Corporation Project.
Hatch is a company that provides consulting services, design engineering and environmental services, among others. For the project,it provides advice for the services from the operational to the infrastructure, integratingthe state-of-the-art technology and taking into account the philosophy of Barrick Pueblo Viejo.
The same culminated in 2011, and, in addition, DIF was in charge of handling the exemptions, evaluating and adapting the route for oversized cargo transportation and supervising the unloading of freights contracted as part of the project.
On the other hand, this project represents a development path for Pueblo Viejo and the Sánchez RamírezProvince, as it shall benefit from the results of Barrick Gold’s mining operation, improving roads, developing infrastructures and improving socioeconomic conditions.
For the installation of Quisqueya I & II thermal power plants, Wärtsilä company hired us for the customs management and transportation of 1,000 containers, of 38,000 m3 for both stages, 24 engines of 300ton each. It is a USD$6 billion/350,000FT project.
We collaborate offering our services of customs management and transport of merchandise.Additionally, we provide advice on the process of exemption, evaluation and adaptation of routes.
We manage the place permits for the transport and the supervision of unloading of charter boats under the strictest quality and safety guidelines.
Located in San Pedro de Macorís, the Quisqueya energy complex is the largest in the Dominican Republic with a total generation capacity of 430 megawatts; 215 MW produced by Quisqueya I plant, and 215 MW by Quisqueya II. Additionally, each of these thermoelectric plants is equipped with a steam turbine, increasing its production capacity to an additional 15 MW, thus boosting its efficiency by taking advantage of the exhaust gases of its engines.
The plants shall operate with 12 engines each, equipped from the factory with a flexible system designed to operate with natural gas, and, alternatively, with diesel or Bunker C (fuel oil). This technology, unprecedented in the country, is one of the most modern and efficient, allowing access to the lowest prices in the market at the time of stocking up, reducing production costs to supply the same amount of energy.
The Quisqueya energy park is located on a plot of 500,000 square meters and represents a total investment of US$65 million, which includes the two plants, transmission lines and an oil pipeline.
