Sarens loads-out one of Vietnam’s heaviest modules
Overdimensional cargo handling specialist, Sarens, has been on hand to load out one of the heaviest modules ever moved at PTSC M&C yard in Vung tau, Bà ria Vietnam. Sarens was contracted by the client to provide heavy lift and transport services of a 4,500 tons LQUP jacket.
The jacket measuring 45 by 53 metres had to be loaded out on a barge at the PTSC M&C fabrication yard. With over six months of detailed planning and precise ballasting calculations, Sarens deployed 168 axle-lines and eight power packs to complete the job.
Eight winches and 34 ballast pumps were commissioned with referenced Sarens suppliers who operated under the supervision of Sarens load-out commander.
The equipment was configured in five days and Sarens’ SPMT team of five, along with other support staff, completed the heaviest load-out ever performed by SPMTs in Vietnam in only four hours.
