April 18 - Lift & Shift (LSPL) has transported and loaded out a 1,535-tonne Larsen & Toubro (L&T) reactor in Hazira, India, destined for a Sasol plant in the USA.
The huge unit was transported from the L&T production facility in Hazira to a ro-ro jetty, where a barge was mobilised and prepared for the load out.
The unit was rolled onto the barge using a six-file combination of SPMT axle lines. Due to the load's large weight and dimensions, LSPL designed additional supports for transport and carried out deck strength checks and point load calculations, in addition to organising lashing requirements.
The reactor, which measured 26.5 m x 15 m x 12 m, was transported by barge to a port, where it was loaded on board a Jumbo Shipping vessel and delivered to the USA.
