Quickport Logistics has handled the transport of equipment for a carbon capture unit from Tallinn, Estonia, to a site in Hengelo, the Netherlands.
The turnkey project included engineering, route surveys, as well as road and sea transport using ro-ro and inland river vessels.
The cargoes included an absorber measuring 44 m x 4.6 m x 6.2 m and weighing 70 tonnes; a desorber that tipped the scales at 33 tonnes and measured 28 m x 3.3 m x 3.4 m; and a direct contact cooling unit that measured 12 m x 4.1 m x 5.8 m and weighed 16 tonnes.
The ro-ro vessel collected the units from Paldiski, Estonia, and shipped them to Antwerp, Belgium. From here the inland vessel Concordia was used for shipment to Hengelo.
