Lubbers continues activities on Baltic Pipe project
The complex transport and logistics company, Lubbers Logistics Group’s involvement in the Baltic Pipeline continued over 2022, despite the project finishing last year.
Lubbers said its Pipelines Department continued its activities for the project that included additional pipe transports. This brought the total number of pipes Lubbers moved for the project to 17,169. The Baltic Pipe project is a strategic gas infrastructure project with the goal of creating a new gas supply corridor in the European market. The Baltic Pipe Project allows transport of gas from Norway to the Danish and Polish markets, as well as to end-users in neighbouring countries. At the same time, the Baltic Pipe Project will enable the supply of gas from Poland to the Danish market.
Between 2020-2022 Lubbers Pipeline Services have coordinated the entire Port-to-Stacking logistics. A total of 14 seagoing vessels were unloaded in three different Danish Ports. All transports to and stacking services on 33 storage locations have been organised by Lubbers. The first vessel was unloaded in February 2020. The pipes were each 12,30 meter long, had a diameter of 0,92 meter and a weight of 12 ton.
Lubbers has its own facility in Esbjerg and the Danish team of Lubbers used the Danish partner Jutlandia for stevedoring services.
Eight truck-trailer combinations were used for this project. As always, Lubbers paid a lot of attention to the loading security to make sure the transports were executed in a safe way.
