After a long journey...

The line of trailers had long opened their mouths wide on Wednesday to finally accommodate the planes from Bitterwasser. But first, customs had to look inside the containers.

Patience was required beforehand. The "Green Mountain" with the valuable cargo from Namibia had reached Rotterdam with a huge delay. But on Wednesday morning, the articulated lorries should finally drop off the Bitterwasser transports in Waghäusel, where they now have their new location.
It's been a long day. For the unloading of the last planes, the scene had to be illuminated with cars, because two container trucks had only made it to Waghäusel from a full motorway blockade in the late afternoon, it was almost evening. In the end, however, all the trailers were able to head home after they had been successfully loaded – just in time for the new season.
Hardly anyone had wanted to pass up the opportunity to receive their planes as early as possible. Only seven latecomers with a long journey will not pick up their planes until Saturday, as planned.

Bitterwasser orders PV plant and reduces its carbon footprint

Namibia obtains most of its electricity from South Africa. There, mainly hard coal power plants are in operation, because South Africa can extract hard coal in opencast mining.
Now the exhaust gases of the South African hard coal power plants are not as well cleaned as in Germany. Therefore it is important to do without this electricity.

The first gliders are loaded and on their way.

This year the gliders will be brought to Bitterwasser in two groups. At the moment no forwarder can guarantee when the containers will arrive. Therefore we have decided to send four containers a little earlier so that they will actually be in Bitterwasser on November 01 for the start of the season.
