The Express Global Logistics (EXG) team, member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) in India, along with their partner, successfully transported one of 30 Orthotropic Steel Decks (OSD) for the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL) Project. MTHL will be the longest sea bridge in India connecting Mumbai to Navi Mumbai near Nhava Sheva.
EXG, along with their partner, moved the heaviest OSD among the 30, weighing an incredible 2652 tons. This makes it the longest ever cargo moved on land in India to date.
The steel deck was moved to the Heavy Civil Infrastructure IC site in Sewri, Mumbai. Moving cargo this large within the stipulated deadlines, required meticulous planning by the EXG engineering team mapping the entire route and path to the inch.
The OSD measured 180 x 15 x 7.5 m. The cargo was transported on:
Front Convey (60 axles)
16 axle x 3 line (48 axles)
12 axle x 1 line (12 axles)
Rear Convey (46 axles)
12 axle x 3 line (36 axles)
10 axle x 1 line (10 axles)
4 Power Pack Units (PPU)
A spokesperson for EXG stated: “The team’s hard work and relentless planning to organise and prepare at the site before the movement took place, allowed for a smooth execution of the project and the team ensured the highest safety standards. EXG kept the pace and completed the challenging OSD transport and is proud to be part of the prestigious MTHL movement and Roll on in Mumbai”
