TWD Monitors Gasification Plant Module Transports from India to Singapore

In 2019 Linde approached a contractor in India for the fabrication of 46 modules intended for a new gasification plant on Jurong Island, Singapore.

The transport of the modules from India to Singapore would be made by sea. All modes of transport can involve operational risks if not properly controlled and efficiently managed, and sea transport is no exception.

In order to minimize the risks involved Linde asked TWD to review, survey, and approve the complete sea transport operation from load out to load in.

With experience in all aspects of heavy transport engineering, TWD was able pinpoint and address the severity of risks that accompany such an operation.

Their engineers reviewed all calculations and method statements, including SPMT transportation and the seafastening design.

Providing on-site assistance, TWD gave the green light for each shipment only when all international quality and safety standards were assured.

During the voyages TWD deployed a sensor on board the vessel to measure and record the vessel motions and accelerations. Using this information TWD has been able to adjust their methods, adding to the success throughout the project involving a total of 10 shipments.
