Heavy-lift shipments for Polish chemical plant
When a chemical complex in Poland was set for extension, a series of heavy-lift shipments JAS Projects Bremen, were brought in for the job. The company started the pre-planning phase in mid-2021, with the company completing a feasibility study for the heavy lift and oversized cargoes from China to Poland.
In order to avoid a potential delay caused by low water in the river system it was mutually agreed to proceed with the road transport solution. In close communication with the client, the JAS engineering team adjusted the design to meet the maximum dimensions feasible for road transport.
In June 2023 the cargo was finally loaded on a heavy lift vessel in Dalian, China and discharged in mid-August in Gdansk, Poland.
On the way from the port to the job site several obstacles had to be cleared, such as street signs. Barriers had to be removed, and some weight spreading was necessary. Three columns with a max. length of 53.05 metres and 62.80 tons were moved to its final destination as scheduled.
