Misnak moves tank quartet

November 25 - Misnak International has coordinated the relocation of four liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) bullet tanks, weighing 450 tonnes each, at Port Reitz in Mombasa, Kenya.

The four tanks were transported from their existing site in Port Reitz to a new foundation area approximately 1 km away, to the southeast of Moi International Airport, where the construction of a new plant is scheduled.

Misnak explained that the tanks - each of which measured 68 m long with diameters of 8.8 m - had to be moved due to several large infrastructure projects underway in Kenya, which involve various land acquisitions.

These projects include the Chinese-funded standard gauge railway being built to link Mombasa to Nairobi, as well as the Mombasa port area road development project - which is being built parallel to the railway.

Misnak noted that the transport was very "challenging and time-sensitive" due to these developments and required close cooperation between the logistics provider, the Chinese contractors and Kenya Railways Corporation.
