Sarens executes oversized load transport in Kazakhstan
Sarens completed the offload and transport of 37 oversised tanks from the KCOI port to the Karabatan Integrated Gas Chemical Complex.
The Belgian specialist was commissioned for the job by Kazakhstan Petrochemical Industries (KPI).
The Karabatan Integrated Gas Chemical Complex, located 33 km north-east of Atyrau and around 9 km north of Karabatan station, is planned to be operational by the second quarter of 2021. Once completed the project aims at release of export-oriented products with high added value and polymer production for industrial diversification.
Sarens said it had to arrange for permissions and approvals from authorities of two regions including the power companies, traffic police, and local civic authorities.
CC4000 available at the KCOI port was used to offload the tanks. The company further noted the 126 axle-lines and 8 prime movers were deployed for the transportation of the oversised loads.
The maximum height of the load was 10m with the trailer and the maximum weight was 250T without the trailer.
The transport was completed in seven continuous trips by a crew of 35 tackling difficult weather conditions – heavy winds, slippery roads, snow, etc.
According to the Project Manager, Azamat Izteleuov, “Operations like this highlight the need for the right equipment, industry expertise, and a willingness to work tirelessly with city planners and officials to make challenging projects a reality.”
