5K Logistics completes furnace project

May 7 - 5K Logistics was brought in to provide heavy machinery transport for a new convection furnace which was to be installed at the Westlake Chemical Corporation styrene plant in Sulphur, Louisiana, USA.

The scope of the plant expansion project required two fast-tracked shipments of industrial convection furnace components from suppliers in Korea to the construction site in Sulphur.

In addition, accessory component shipments were coordinated from multiple global suppliers. The consignment included 2,500 cu m of breakbulk cargo and twelve 40 ft containers.

5K logistics performed a transport plan and coordinated the shipments from Korea and other global suppliers. The cargo shipments were directed to, received and cleared in Houston, USA.

The three large main furnace components were loaded onto rail cars and delivered to the construction site, where they were lifted onto Goldhofer trailers and manoeuvred into position to be set in place.

They measured up to 40 ft x13ft x18ft. The remaining over-dimensional breakbulk cargo and the containers were trucked to the construction site.

The project had a tight time schedule and large demurrage charges would be payable had the project been delayed.

5K Logistics president Paul McGrath said: "due to 5K Logistics planning and execution on this project, all equipment arrived at the plant on time, on budget and without incident."
