Total Movements Transport 5 Units from Factory to Designated Port

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 8m wide and the heaviest weighing 110t from manufacturers site in India to the designated Indian export port.




The company noted that the execution of the project coincided with the tail end of the monsoon, which needed detailed planning being carried out by their team. All the parameters for both cargo safety and stability on the road and at sea were taken into consideration.

The three Over Dimensional Cargo units (ODCs) for transport 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 safely loaded on time.

A suitable technical study was carried out to ensure that everything went according to plan. With support from all the stakeholders involved, the cargoes were loaded in a safe and timely manner.
