Logistics services provider Gosselin Group handled the first two heavy lifts for Ineos Project One at PSA Breakbulk Terminal in Antwerp. Gosselin has been appointed as the general contractor for the marshalling yard by Ineos Belgium.

The two components for the ethane cracker under development in the Port of Antwerp have been delivered by BigLift Shipping’s multipurpose heavy lift vessel Happy Star. These included a splitter weighing 591 tons and a demethaniser weighing 347 tons.

Both units have been discharged onto a double 32-axle self-propelled modular transporter (SPMT) of Felbermayr. Following internal transport, both units landed onto stool arrangement prepared by Sarens.

Project One represents the largest investment in European chemistry in the past 25 years. The cracker, which will be the most sustainable of its kind, will be commissioned in 2026, according to Ineos. The facility will have a nameplate capacity of 1450kt of ethylene per year.
