Amur GPP project cargo on site
At the start of September the fourth phase of the project cargo deliveries for the Gazprom Amur gas processing plant project was completed with the final 511-ton barge load. Combi Lift discharged the final barge shipment in Svobodny.
The Bremen-based heavy lift and project cargo transport specialist Combi Lift faced a number of challenges during the fourth phase of Amur GPP shipments. The prevailing Corona situation with its related restrictions as well as considerable delays due to high water on the rivers Amur and Zeya, had some challenging impacts on the operations. However, throughout the active summer season, from mid-May to September, the company managed to deliver the project.
In the course of phase four, the Combi Lift fleet of tugs and barges along with two seagoing vessels, covered a total distance of 23,860 nautical miles from loading ports in Europe and South Korea to the site and transported a total of 34,551 tonnes. Despite aggravated circumstances, Combi Lift managed to deliver damage-free and on time to its customer, the Linde Group, which hired Combi Lift to be the exclusive logistics partner for oversized and heavy lift cargo for the Gazprom Amur GPP project.
The Amur GPP is located near the town of Svobodny, Amur Region. With a design processing capacity of 42 billion cubic meters of gas per year, the GPP is going to become the main enterprise for advanced gas processing in Russia’s Far East.
