Over 4,000 cubic metres of cargo, destined for an Egyptian refinery have been handled in the North of Spain at the Port of Avilés, the cargo, two oversized components and their spares, were handled by Kaleido Logistics.
The logistics services provider, Kaleido, was hired by Ingeniería y Diseño Europeo (IDESA), one of the leading manufacturing companies of large equipment. The oversized components and their spares were loaded at the Port of Avilés, destination Adabiya, Egypt.
With more than 4,000 cubic metres of cargo, the main components were a Coke Fractionator weighing 230 tons and a Quench Tower weighing 90 tons.
Coordination is key
For the two-day loading operations, the coordination of the different services provided by Kaleido was a key factor. The company provided sea freight, ship agency, engineering, lashing and welding.
Additionally, Kaleido provided its technology with INKLINA, a system that assures that the lifting in tandem is done with the required precision and calibration of both cranes, for the loading and unloading operations.
After twelve days of transit, cargo has already been discharged at Adabiya port and is ready for delivery to refinery.
MV Mick in action
According to the AIS data, the vessel that recently took a 12-day trip from Port of Avilés to Port of Adabiyah on the western shore of Suez Bay, was the dship Carriers multipurpose vessel Mick.
