Total Movements, member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) in India, reported about a successful multimodal transport of a 730 ton heavlift cargo on the West Coast of India consigned for a refinery project in Thailand. The cargo with a width of 8 meter and weighing 730 ton was moved from the supplier’s plant to the load port in India.
A spokesperson for Total Movements stated: “Road transportation from the supplier’s works to the nearest jetty, barging to the nearest seaport on the west coast and feeding alongside the vessel were all part of our scope. The nominated jetty was a tidal jetty, due to which the required barging operation had to be accomplished in a particular time slot, which posed a significant challenge. The cargo was rolled on to the barge, lashed and secured as per the planned method statement and safely barged to the load port and fed alongside the designated chartered ocean vessel for the voyage to Thailand.
Our engineering/execution team made site visits and detailed discussions with multiple stakeholders to execute this movement in a flawless manner.”
