Sadleirs Global Logistics (Australia), member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) for Australia, was tasked with the movement of two locally manufactured Oil and Gas control rooms each measuring 28.5 x 7.2 x 4.5 m and weighing 108 ton from Brisbane, Queensland to Karratha in Western Australia for their client Chevron.
This epic one-way journey of over 5800 km across Australia through multiple states required extensive planning, right from the original route survey through to the operational co-ordination and communications. This was never going to be a simple move, with transport and transit approvals being required from some 227 individual municipalities along with arranging both private and police escorts, a max speed limit of 40 km’s per hour, daytime movement and numerous obstacles to overcome with such a move.
A spokesperson for the company said:
“The two transits also encountered localised flooding, extreme heat, frost (Yes, frost in Australia), numerous Covid-19 related tests and restrictions and worst of all the massive Aussie bushfires. We had it all…
The end result, despite these challenges:
Both control rooms delivered safely, efficiently and in perfect condition to a very satisfied customer.
Many thanks to our project partners Russells Transport and the entire Chevron Team.”
