Cargo begins arriving at RAPID

March 31 - Three steam cracking modules have been delivered to the material offloading facility (MOLF) in Tanjung Setapa, Johor for Petronas' Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development (RAPID) project in Malaysia.

The three modules will form part of the main structure for RAPID's steam cracker complex, which will be constructed by a consortium of Toyo Engineering Corporation and Toyo Engineering & Construction.

The modules, measuring 76 m in length and 4.2 m in diameter, have a combined weight of approximately 540 tonnes.

The arrival of the abnormal loads signified the start of operations for the MOLF in Tanjung Setapa, marking another milestone in the progress of the Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC), which is scheduled for start up in 2019.

The MOLF in Tanjung Setapa comprises two jetties with three berthing facilities, capable of receiving heavy lift, oversize and breakbulk cargoes.

Another MOLF in Teluk Ramunia will also be used to serve the needs of the RAPID project. Together, both ports are estimated to handle around 4 million tonnes of cargo over the next three years, said Petronas.
