Transportation of 248mt Desalter Vessels by EXG
13th August 2021
Members in India, Express Global Logistics (EXG) recently performed the transportation of two desalter vessels from Gujarat to Rajasthan. Each desalter vessel weighs 248mt and has dimensions of 33.65 x 4.60 x 4.85m.
A desalter is processing equipment and a major component of a refinery used to remove salt and other impurities from crude oil. They were loaded at an industrial process and project engineering company in Gandhidham (Gujarat) and delivered to a petroleum refinery in Barmer (Rajasthan), covering a distance of 630km.
A combination of EXG's experienced operations team and engineers helped to successfully execute the job. At the end of the transportation, a challenge was faced before approaching the site as there were insufficient turning radiuses on the curved roads for the cargo to navigate through safely. So EXG promptly arranged for civil work to be done and built a temporary approach road to overcome the problem allowing the cargo to reach its destination on time.
The seamless movement of this valuable cargo was ensured by the thorough due diligence including detailed route surveys conducted by the EXG engineering team prior to executing any project.
