EGL supports Assiut power station project

Egyptian Global Logistics (EGL) has transported components for the Assiut power station project in Egypt.

The project site is located approximately 850 km from the port of Dekheila.

EGL’s project scope included offloading four 228-tonne transformers. Four other 228-tonne transformers were offloaded from the same vessel for a separate project.

Due to congestion at the port, the vessel berthed alongside the container terminal where sufficient storage and unloading space was arranged.

EGL was also responsible for route surveys and transport studies that were used to select the most economic route from the port, taking into account bridges, possible civil works and the removal of street furniture.

Along the route, a bridge in Manqabad had to be reinforced to allow the heavy units to pass across. EGL explained that special calculations and dynamics tests were completed before and after the crossing to make sure that the load did not harm the bridge’s structure.

In total, 83 EGL employees worked on the project, including engineers, technicians, administrators, safety officers, escort staff, drivers, mechanics, electricians, riggers and Customs clearing staff.
