March 18 - Five project moves have been executed recently by six members of the WCA Projects network.
MFC Transport, the WCA Projects member representing India, moved an over-dimensional nuclear power plant component a distance of 370 km from Ahmedabad to Adani Port.
MFC had to design and fabricate a rotational holding device to transport the Calandria, which measured 10.45 m long, 9 m wide by 2.52 m high and weighed 73.1 tonnes.
WCA Projects representative in China, Universal Logistics, completed the transportation of two 56.4 m x 5.1 m x 4 m cargoes weighing 53 tonnes each, from Jiangsu Province via Shanghai to India.
An extra-long trailer with a wide turning radius was necessary for the move, as there was no allowance for the bending of the cargo during transit.
Malaysia headquartered Mory TNTE handled a 60-tonne overheight press machine, which was exported from China to Malaysia's Port Klang, before being delivered to the consignee. Mory was also responsible for positioning the press inside the manufacturing facility. The 4.85 m high unit had to pass a low bridge with just 5 cm of clearance, which required exact measurement and monitoring, plus a special police escort from the port to the site.
Alliance 21 and Hevold Shipping, members of the WCA Projects network representing Singapore and Norway respectively, came together to consolidate rigging equipment from Norway and Poland for delivery to Shanghai.
The main body frame tipped-the-scales at more than 50 tonnes, while accessories were consolidated in two containers. The team had just one week to mobilse and compete the task, stated WCA Projects.
Network representative for Pakistan, Freight Connection Group, coordinated the transport of a 75-tonne transformer from Karachi airport to Bahawalpur Punjab.
The transformer and auxiliary equipment arrived by air from China. Freight Connection's scope of work involved unloading the transformer directly from plane onto a multi-axle trailer; Customs clearance; and transportation to the final jobsite.
