VTG wins Linde contract

November 30 - VTG Rail Logistics has been contracted by The Linde Group to transport large-scale Asian and European components for a natural gas processing plant under construction in the Amur region of Russia.

The Linde Group is responsible for engineering and procuring various units used for for ethane and nitrogen extraction, as well as for purifying and liquefying helium, and has contracted VTG to transport the plant components required for the construction of the units.

By 2023, VTG will have transported a total of 600,000 freight tons (679,604 cu m) of general cargo for the project.

The contract is being performed by VTG Rail Logistics' project logistics department, which specialises in individualised customer solutions.

"This is one of the largest and most comprehensive projects in the history of our company," says Günther J. Ferk, managing director of VTG Rail Logistics.  "Everything goes through us - from consulting, to transport planning, right through to coordinating and monitoring the global rail, truck and ship transportation."

In addition, VTG is developing its own IT platform for the project, which will monitor the transportation via GPS. It will also be able to call up client and supplier orders, waybills and tracking and tracing data at any time.

As the individual components are produced in different countries, they are transported to Russia in different ways. Those coming from Italy, China and Korea, for example, are taken by ship to the Russian port of Vladivostok, where they are then loaded into trucks and transported to the construction site. Other plant systems produced in Europe are transported by rail, covering around 10,000 km of rail transport in total, to the Russian loading terminal in Mihajlo-Chesnokovskaja and then by truck to the site. The first shipments have already been carried out successfully.
