Total Movements hauls 1104 mt of project cargo in India
Total Movements has recently handled the delivery of project cargo weighing a total of 1104 mt for an export project in the Middle East. The company moved two 552 mt MDEA Contactors, each with a length of 44 metres, from the supplier to the load port on the west coast of India.
The Total Movements technical/operations team communicated with the supplier in advance about the civil works required at their premises to ensure a smooth operation from the start. The undertaking required meticulous planning.
Since this shipment was scheduled during the heavy monsoons, a detailed route survey was conducted, during which the company’s technical team considered various metrics, including turning radius analysis using technical tools, several calculations to ensure safe loading and transportation, and local permits were also obtained in advance to ensure timely delivery of the cargo.
Considerable civil works were also carried out enroute from the supplier’s factory to the port. Following the arrival of the vessel, the cargo was moved from storage to the berth, and fed under the vessel’s hook, and loaded onto the vessel’s deck.
The vessel used for the job is the 2010-build Type 116 heavy lift vessel Amoenitas, owned by SAL Heavy Lift, part of the Jumbo SAL Alliance.
