Total Movements delivers Super OD Cargo for Greenfield LNG Plant in India

Total Movements, member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) in India, successfully delivered a Super OD Solid Stainless Steel Recondenser with a diameter of more than 7 meter for a LNG Regasification Terminal on the east coast of India.

The extremely complex movement involved multiple transportation legs as follows:

  • Road transportation from the factory to the nearby jetty
  • Barge transportation from the jetty to the nearest major seaport on the west coast of India
  • Sea transportation by heavy lift vessel from the load port to the discharge port on the east coast of India
  • Road transportation from the discharge port to site.

Major challenges encountered during the operation were:

  • Mobilization of a great number of equipment to complete each leg
  • Synchronization of multiple transportation legs
  • Getting a suitable coastal tonnage in time for breakbulk shipping
  • Lack of prior track record of handling a heavy lift cargo at the discharge port

A spokesperson for Total Movements said: “We are happy to have delivered this cargo safely. A big shout out to all the stakeholders involved who played a key role to make this operation a grand success.”
