Express Global Logistics (EXG) has transported a 55-tonne module from west to east India.
The waste heat recovery unit (WHRU) measured 8.6 m x 5.45 m x 5.2 m and was moved 3,700 km over 66 days. A six-member crew was deployed for the project and an escort vehicle shadowed the transport along the route.
The total height of the module along with the trailer and axles was 6.4 m. Given that road signs are installed at an average height of 5.5 m, according to EXG, a plan for these to be dismantled along the route was essential.
India’s nationwide Covid-19 lockdown measures also made the project move challenging. EXG said that its crew was able to arrange all necessary permissions to ensure there was no delay to the delivery schedule.
EXG is a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC).
