Khimji Ramdas Shipping, member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) for Oman, delivered a diverter damper from the Port of Duqm to the West Haima Marmul site of Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) after receiving the OOG cargo under the hook, clearing customs, undertaking shore handling with the port and carrying it over a distance of 462 km.
The haul was done over a period of 4 days in their route from Port of Duqm in Central Oman, where the piece was discharged from the deck of the container vessel directly on to Kimji Ramdas trailer, to Marmul PDO camp.
The road transport, executed in coordination with the Ministry of Transport and the Royal Oman Police (ROP), involved usage of a 8 axle trailer with private and police escorts and was done after a route survey undertaken in the stretch to be covered, with the height of the cargo being the main challenge.
The diverter damper delivered has a three-way valve that discharges exhaust gas from the gas turbine to a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) to be used at the PDO site at Marmul at the West Haima facility in South Oman.
The dimensions of the diverter damper are 7.6 x 5.9 x 6.2 meters with a weight of 45 tonnes.
