Three UCL Holding (UCLH) companies - Universal Forwarder, North-Western Shipping Company (NWSC) and Volgo-Baltic Logistics - coordinated the delivery of oversized cargoes to the Cryogas-Vysotsk LNG terminal in the Leningrad region of Russia.
In November 2017, Universal Forwarder developed a detailed logistics plan that included the acceptance of ships from the UAE and Europe, plus the coordination of all UCLH company activities for the project.
In late February 2018, two 240-tonne gas liquefaction units measuring more than 29 m in length, two 90-tonne cooling units measuring more than 24 m in length, plus various other components, were delivered to the Sea Port of Saint-Petersburg.
The cargo was unloaded onto the deck of the floating crane Bogatyr-4 before being transferred to a dedicated heavyweight cargo berth, where it was consolidated for Customs clearance.
Between March 13 and March 15, 2018, the first batch of cargo was reloaded onto NWSC's dry cargo vessel, Onyx, using Bogatyr-4 and two gantry cranes. NWSC's project logistics division, Volgo-Baltic Logistics, supplied a cargo plan for the placement of the equipment in the ship's hold and on the deck. The Russian Maritime Register of Shipping approved the cargo securing specifications. The cargo was then delivered to the port of Vysotsk.
Having delivered the first batch of cargo, Onyx returned to Sea Port of Saint-Petersburg and was loaded with the second batch of equipment, which was delivered to Vysotsk on March 22.
