First Project Completed by Roll Group UAE
Roll Group recently opened an office in Mussafah, Abu Dhabi, to offer land and sea heavy transport solutions to the Middle East and African market.
The first Factory to Foundation project managed by the new office, ADNOC’s phase one of IGDE II, a module transportation, started December 2020 and was completed in 5 weeks.
Phase one of the project consisted of weighing, sea and land transportation, and installation onto foundation of several Modules.
Regional Sales Director – Nimalan Logeswaran comments “Due to the complexity of the project and the considerable logistical challenges involved in transporting and installing modules offshore during the winter season, Roll Group offered a bespoke solution utilizing the Bigroll Biscay deck carrier instead of a standard barge to overcome the adverse weather conditions usually experienced enroute from Mussafah to Das Island. This allowed Roll Group to minimize the delays traditionally experienced for barge transport during the winter months, which in turn allowed Roll Group to complete Phase one of IGDE II successfully and ahead of schedule.”
IGDE II was first project for the Bigroll Biscay which was acquired by Roll Group last year. The wide deck carrier has a length of 146 meters and a width of 32 meters. The overall deck load capacity is over 12,2 mton. Additionally, the Bigroll Biscay is DP2 equipped, which enables Roll Group to serve clients that required DP capabilities for their projects.
“The company strongly believes in project opportunities within the region. With the new regional head office in Mussafah, Abu Dhabi and a wide fleet of onshore equipment already based in country, Roll Group can better serve our clients both land and sea transportation challenges in the region” according to Nimalan Logeswaran.
Roll Group will also execute ADNOC’s IGDE II project second campaign in 2021. Like the first campaign, Roll Group has been awarded the contract for the land and sea transportation scope.
