An over dimensional heavy cargo was moved from Tarapur, Maharashtra to Barmer, Rajasthan successfully in a well-planned and carefully coordinated operation. The Express Global Logistics (EXG) team, member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) in India, transported the cargo for a well-known industrial company.
The cargo consisted of:
• An Absorber Column (allows separation of gases from liquids) with dimensions 32.3 x 3.4 x 3.7 m weighing 75 ton
• A Stripper Column (helps remove volatiles from water) with dimensions 42.05 x 5 x 5.7 m weighing 220 ton, using a 12.5 m Spacer
• A Naphtha Stabiliser Column (a distillation column) with dimensions 50.7 x 4.8 x 5.4 m weighing 129 ton, using a 14.6 m Spacer
• A Swing Naphtha Stripper (heavy gases condenser) 36.5 x 6.2 x 6.7 m weighing 92 ton, using a 10 m Spacer
EXG’s complete scope included transportation, railway shutdowns, civil work at various points, and dismantling of a toll plaza. The team dealt with heavy non-seasonal rains rendering the roads pot-holed and uneven in many places making the movement risky for the cargo. Civil work was done in several areas along the way.
The EXG team endured the challenges and stayed the course despite bad road conditions due to the change in weather. During the movement, the critical height and length of the cargo demanded the structure of a toll plaza be dismantled and redone to accommodate the cargo safely.
EXG’s asset management, heavy hauling, and engineering teams coordinated to create detailed plans well in advance of the cargo’s movement. EXG completed and delivered all the packages in close coordination with our operations and execution teams successfully.
