Successful heavy-lift transportation from supplier location at Fujairah Fze to Fujairah port (UAE)

In 2019, TLS had undertaken another one challenging ODC shipment from supplier yard at Fujairah Fze to Fujairah port (within UAE). This transportation includes route survey, method of statement with transport engineering study and calculations, route modifications, street furniture removals, stooling at port, crane handling operations including lifting study, permits for transportation and crane handling operation, risk assessments, customs clearances and 3 x ODC cargo transportation to port.

The complexity of this movement was very high, challenge presented itself during the initial stage as there were limited access route and congested turning area inside the FZE. Due to the complexity of the cargo dimension and handling, we had opted a different pattern from the conventional method and shifted the cargo over the FZE boundary wall using 1 x 500 tons & 1 x 300 tons capacity mobile cranes (from trailer to trailer).  

Another Demethanizer also lifted and shifted over the FZE boundary wall using the mobile cranes and kept it on steel stool supports temporarily. Hydraulic conventional Trailers used for the transportation has the ability to raise and lower mechanically using their hydraulic suspension system, Hence after the delivery of 1st demathaniser at port the same trailer has been used for the transportation of 2nd demathaniser.

Access to port from FZE was modified, bypass had been developed, some sign boards, lamp posts had been removed due to insufficient turning radius for manoeuvring the 60 m long cargo using 32 axle lines. All permissions, NOC’s from FZE authorities & port authorities for removing street furnitures, developing bypass route and crane handling at FZE had been obtained in a short time and cargo was delivered as per the schedule given by client.

TLS had successfully delivered these cargoes safely at port within the estimated delivery time.
