Al Faris were recently awarded the project of loading and transporting a turret type buoy. The buoy weighing 455t with an 18.3m diameter and 16m height is the biggest and heaviest turret type buoy to be transported on road.
A project of this nature requires detailed planning to successfully orchestrate the complex activities necessary for ensuring uninterrupted safe services; from route analysis to on-road safety permissions. The route was analyzed and surveyed by their technical team. The technical support documentation, execution plans, route analysis report and HSE protocols were prepared in-house and discussed with the client prior to project execution.
The biggest challenge during transportation was maneuvering the SPMT with the load in narrow routes, bottle necks and sharp turns. In addition, significant diversions and managing temporary traffic routes were also a requirement to carry out this project successfully. Al Faris’ team of engineers and technicians carried out the operation smoothly with utmost safety and efficiency.
