Gas to Liquid Project

DACOROM International shipping house, for and behalf of the contracting company CJ ICM Logistics, has organized in Constanta seaport a cargo transshipment for highly complex industrial products with extreme dimensions and weights, as follows:

  • 2 unit of drums separators with the following specification: 25 X 8.80 X 9.20 meters / 351.5 mt per unit
  • 2 units of catalyst slurry hoppers with the following specifications: 51 X 8.6 x 8.72 meters / 501.4 mt per unit

At Constanta seaport the cargo shipments from the vessel into 2 barges/pontoons specially designed for large cargo shipments were carried out by the cranes of the vessel – very difficult operations giving the extreme weight of the units and the positioning of the barges relative to the vessek; transshipment of the 501.4 mt pieces took 1 day for each unit.

The operations were successfully completed which was confirmed both by the representatives of the beneficiary and by the survey reports drafted by the authorized personnel.

The equipment is manufactured in China and provided by HYUNDAI Engineering for the Uzbekistan gas to Liquid project (Uzbekistan).

The transport logistics were particularly complex – a heavy lift vessel specialized in handling oversized cargo was used for the sea transport from the port of China to Constanta seaport while for the transshipments of units 2 barges / pontoons were used on the Black See and on the canals to the Caspian Sea followed by a transshipment from the 2 barges to the Caspian Sea Port and in the end a road transport of approximately 2,300 km to the final destination
