Express Global Logistics Sets a Record: Transports Longest and Heaviest OSD in India for Mumbai Trans Harbour Link Project11. May 2022
Project Logistics Alliance's member Express Global Logistics (EXG), representing India, transported one of 30 Orthotropic Steel Decks (OSD) successfully for the Mumbai Trans Harbour Link (MTHL) project with their partner. Mumbai Trans Harbour Link is an under-construction project, 21.8 kilometres long freeway grade road bridge connecting Mumbai, India, with Navi Mumbai, India, near Nhava Sheva. When the project is completed, it will be the longest sea bridge in India. The project is estimated to cost 2.3 billion dollars and is currently expected to complete by October 2023.
Along with their partner, EXG moved the heaviest OSD among the 30, weighing an incredible 2652 metric tons which also makes it the longest ever cargo moved on land in India to date. The steel deck was moved to the Heavy Civil Infrastructure IC site in Sewri, Mumbai. The OSD measured 180 meters in length, 15 meters in width and 7,5 meters in height. The cargo transported on:
- Front Convey (60 axles)
16 axle x 3 line (48 axles)
12 axle x 1 line (12 axles)
- Rear Convey (46 axles)
12 axle x 3 line (36 axles)
10 axle x 1 line (10 axles)
4 Power Pack Units (PPU)
The challenging part of this project was moving cargo this large within the stipulated deadlines. Through EXG's experienced engineering team's meticulous planning, they mapped the entire route and the path to the inch project and successfully implemented it with high safety standards.
The EXG Team's hard work and relentless planning to organize and prepare at the site before the movement took place allowed for the smooth execution of the project.
On behalf of the PLA community, we congratulate EXG Team for keeping pace and completing the challenging OSD transport on the prestigious MTHL project in Mumbai, India.
