HHL helps Tobolsk construction

June 15 - Hansa Heavy Lift (HHL) has transported more than 60,000 cu m of petrochemical refinery equipment to assist with the construction of Sibur's ZapSibNeftekhim polyolefin complex in Tobolsk, Russia.

In 2016, for the first phase of the project, HHL delivered equipment utilising its heavy lift vessels HHL Tokyo and HHL Volga, while the second part of the project, involving HHL Lagos, HHL Valparaiso, HHL Venice and HHL Congo, was completed this year.

The cargoes, which included boilers, fractionators, gas section drums, columns, a cracked gas cooler and a process generator, were loaded at the Port of Dalian in China, and the ports of Ulsan and Masan in South Korea, before being delivered to Belgium.

The heaviest piece transported weighed over 481 tonnes and measured 87.55 m x 4.05 m x 4.90 m.
"This was a major project that involved six of our ships being used at their full capacity, which required in-depth engineering knowledge and experience," said Gleb Faldin, commercial manager, HHL.

The shipments, which represent over 50 percent of all equipment for the Tobolsk project, will subsequently be shipped via HHL Lagos and HHL Venice, to Sabetta, Russia, where they will be discharged onto barges for transportation to their final destination.
