     Lift & Shift Successfully Transports and Delivers the Heaviest & Widest Crude & Vacuum Columns on Indian Roads

    As part of HPCL’s Visakh refinery modernisation project (VRMP) of 9 MMTPA CDU & VDU project, Project Logistics Alliance member for India, Lift & Shift has delivered 2 columns which are the heaviest and widest columns to have been transported on Indian roads.

    The equipment details are as follows:
    The vacuum column had dimensions of 63.3 x 13.1 x 14.3 meters and weighed 990 tons.
    The crude column had dimensions of 76 x 9.3 x 9.93 meters and weighed 728 tons
    The columns were manufactured by Larsen and Toubro Limited, at their Hazira Yard and transported by multimodal route to Visakh.
    Lift & Shift was awarded this contract, and involved from the conceptualising of the fabrication of the equipment, all the way to making this transport a reality.

    The transport involved loading the columns at L&T Hazira which was done using 64 SPMT axles of LSPL having 512 tyres / 2 heavy duty remote control operated power pack units of 440 horse power hydraulically operated trailers.

    The columns were shifted from yard to L&T ‘L’ jetty, which was over 2.5 kms away, and then rolled onto the barge during high tide on LSPL ocean-going barge AF 281, towed by LSPL tugs.

    The tow took 30 days to reach Visakh outer anchorage on 3 Feb, after it left from L&T Jetty Hazira on 4 Jan. The planning was made so that the tow did not need to stop for refuelling and reached the destination safely. LSPL team monitored daily weather and was constantly in touch with the tug crew.

    Both columns were rolled-off on 14-15 Feb, and thereafter transported on 17 Feb and 24 Feb respectively from HSL to HPCL site, covering 4.5 km on the roads of Visakh in 5 hours of time.

    Lift and Shift delivered the equipment safely to HPCL and received full appreciation from the client:

    1. Mr. S Raja. Executive Director HPCL Visakha:
    Congratulations to all associated with and involved in movement of the Crude Column today. The movement was very smooth, orderly and as per scheduled.
