Royal transportation for Mindanao brewery

Royal Cargo has transported fermentation tanks for the construction of a brewery in Mindanao, Philippines.

Royal Cargo was responsible for the inland transportation of the components, which were shipped to the Philippines from China. The company’s project scope included the unloading of parts at the port and final erection of the tanks at the construction site.

With travelling heights ranging between 6.2 m and 7.2 m, the transportation required the raising of overhead obstructions and the temporary removal of a concrete footbridge.

“The original plan was to complete the deliveries in 19 nights with two tanks [moving] per night, but we were able to reduce this to 14 nights travelling with three tanks most of the time,” said Martin Copon, assistant vice president at Royal Cargo.

Royal Cargo is a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) in the Philippines.
