EXG Handle Two 80mt Rotor Units from India to Europe
22nd June 2021
Express Global Logistics (EXG) in India recently handled the multimodal operations of two rotor units (each weighing 80mt) shipped to Europe for an international manufacturing company specialising in hydro power equipment.
Both rotors were loaded at Nhava Sheva Port in India with the first (dimensions of 5.95 x 3.65 x 3.90m) shipped to Trieste, Italy and the second (dimensions of 6.35 x 3.65 x 3.90m) to Antwerp, Belgium.
The scope of the project included transportation from the site, obtaining custom clearance at the port, port handling and ocean freight. Considering each unit weighed 80mt, it was not feasible for them to be loaded using gantry and shore cranes so EXG worked in close coordination with the shipping line and port officials to load the cargo using a floating crane.
Vishvendra Singh at EXG comments; "We made it cost effective for the client by using breakbulk on container vessels instead of conventional breakbulk. It was challenging using a floating crane due to unfavourable wind and tide movements so precision was crucial to get the crane berthed alongside the vessel to load the cargo safely."
Both the rotors were carefully loaded without any incident and the complex operations were expertly handled by Express Global Logistics through seamless coordination between the project managers and engineers.
