Total Movements, member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) in India, moved five units of power plant equipment and accessories with the widest piece being 8 m wide and the heaviest weighing 110 tons from manufacturers site in India to the designated Indian export port.
The company states: “With the execution of the project being getting coincided with the fag end of the monsoon, detailed planning was carried out by our team. All the parameters on-road as well as on sea for cargo safety and stability were taken into consideration.”
The three ODCs by road were placed on suitable vehicles, lashed properly and moved out from the supplier’s plant to the load port. The remaining two critical-shaped equipment (Neck) required extreme supervision as they were to be loaded on the barge by a LOLO operation that required a very high-capacity crane. This operation was executed under close supervision of our expert personnel, considering tidal factors and cargo safety. The cargo was secured/lashed, moved by barge to the load port, brought alongside the vessel and loaded safely in a timely manner.
A suitable technical study was done to ensure that everything goes according to plan. With support from all the stakeholders involved, the cargoes were loaded in a safe and timely manner.
