Lift & Shift Delivers Critical Equipment For IOCL Paradip

Lift and Shift India Pvt. Ltd, (LSPL) a leading Heavy-lift operator and Project Logistics company in India operating for over 7 decades, have delivered another milestone by transporting safely 15 Heavy-lift & Over-Dimensional equipment from L&T Hazira for Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOCL), Paradip Refinery, one of the prestigious projects of Government of India. Lift & Shift is a Project Logistics Alliance member from India and you can find details on this project in the following article.

M/s. Larsen & Toubro Hydrocarbon Engineering (LTHE) was the EPC company for the project and was awarded the contract for the expansion of Mono Ethylene Glycol (MEG) plant and Ethylene Recovery unit (ERU) which included critical Heavy lift & ODC equipment from their yard in Hazira, Gujarat.

Lift & Shift India was contracted by fellow Project Logistics Alliance member All Cargo Logistics Ltd for movement of 15 Heavy lift & ODC equipment from the fabrication facility in Hazira to Adani Hazira Port.

The cargo was shipped in two lots which involved Land and Marine transport using LSPL 250 class barge in 3 voyages from Larsen & Toubro Jetty to Adani Port Hazira.

The Critical and Challenging equipment was transporting the EO Reactor weighing 1200 MT and 2 Columns of 100 m length. The length of the 2nd column required the RORO jetty at L&T Hazira facility to be modified and leveled to meet "zero" degree elevation against the actual jetty which is inclined and suited shorter equipment.

The EO Reactor was transported on 3 side by side axles using a total 66 SPMT axles. The Barge AF 250 loaded 2 Nos 100 m columns were flagged off by Mr. Dharmendra Pradhan the Cabinet Minister for Petroleum & Natural Gas in the Government of India.

Lift & Shift's expertise team was involved in meticulous planning from the beginning to optimize the road and marine movement from Larsen & Toubro fabrication facility to Hazira port which is one of the keys for the successful execution of this project. Congratulations from the Project Logistics Alliance team, we are impressed!
