April 8 - Tecniproject has shifted a complete ammonia plant from Puerto Mejillones, Chile to Xingang, China.
The 24,000 cu m shipment was loaded on to two heavy lift vessels. 20 pieces in the consignment weighed over 100 tons (90.8 tonnes). The heaviest item weighed 350 tons (317.5 tonnes).
Tecniproject lifted the heavy cargoes onto heavy-duty flat bed trailers using its own gantry crane system and delivered the shipment to the loadport - a distance of approximately 10 km. Tecniproject was forced to construct two bypasses along the route to avoid high voltage power cables.
Tecniproject is a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) network, representing Chile.
