    Barrus Projects Delivers Wind Power Blades to Russia

    Barrus Projects, member of the Project Logistics Alliance for Russia and Kazakhstan, has successfully completed the complex transportation of a full volume of wind blades from Bangalore, India to the construction site of a wind farm in the Russian Federation.

    This was part of the project for the construction of the Adygea Wind Power Plant, being built by NovaWind JSC. The project teams of Barrus Logistics, Barrus Projects and Special Transport and Engineering (part of the Barrus group) in the Russian Federation and India were nominated for the transportation of the full volume of blades (60 sets or 180 units of blades).

    The LM wind power blades have the following dimensions (LxWxH) 49.42 m x 3.66 m x 2.88 m and weigh 10.4 MT each. Barrus is extremely proud of the outstanding work carried out by their employees in India and the Russian Federation (Samara, St. Petersburg, Novorossiysk, Rostov-on-Don, Moscow, Astrakhan) for the needs of NovaWind JSC and the State Atomic Energy Corporation ROSATOM in the wind power sector, which is new to Russia. Their timely delivery of one of the most difficult wind turbine components in terms of transportation, allowed their client to carry out the first wind turbine installation at the site of the Adygea wind farm: http://novawind.ru/press/news/news_item.php?page=244

    Project teams of Barrus Projects, Barrus Logistics and Special Transport and Engineering continue their active work for the needs of NovaWind JSC and ROSATOM, since there are still 328 more sets (or 948 blades) to be delivered for the construction of the next 20 wind turbine platforms in the Southern Federal District.

    Great job Barrus and good luck for the remaining sets to come!

    C.H. Robinson Builds a Bridge to Complete Logistics Project

    C.H Robinson, member of the Project Logistics Alliance for Canada, Singapore and USA, reached out by a long-standing client to the company's project logistics experts for help in moving air separation equipment from China to South Korea. The oversized cargo, measuring 35.7 x 5.8 x 4.9 meters and weighing 183.25 metric tons, needed to be collected at the Port of Zhangjiagang, loaded onto a vessel, customs cleared, and delivered to inland South Korea. There was only one obstacle: the transportation route in South Korea involved crossing a river bridge that was simply too small to handle the heavy equipment.

    Undaunted by the challenge, the logistics specialists developed an alternate plan that included the construction of a temporary bridge that could accommodate the over-dimensional, heavy cargo. Utilizing a local civil engineering company for the design, the C.H. Robinson team obtained the necessary permits from local authorities and the temporary bridge was built. Additional civil works for temporary removal of road signs and lifting of wires were also completed.

    It took four and a half months to get all the permitting in place and six weeks for the bridge to be completed. Two weeks later, the air separation equipment was safely transported across the temporary bridge and arrived at its destination. In addition to complicated cargo projects, C.H. Robinson offers the ability to service all transportation needs, including ocean, air, customs brokerage, trade compliance, vendor management, and surface transportation.

    Congratulations from The Project Logistics Alliance Team!

    “FLS Projects shipped a large luffing jib tower crane from Thailand to Canada.”

    “FLS Projects shipped a large luffing jib tower crane from Thailand to Canada. This so-called "Big luffer" manufactured in Denmark was part of a total of 3 specialized cranes used in the construction of the largest wind farm in Thailand in 2017-18. When the order came on short notice to move this urgently needed crane to Canada FLS Projects’ Thailand team organized the entire transport scope in record time: A suitable vessel with a fast transit time was chartered from the spot market and in close coordination with the local shipper all cargo was collected from the storage yard within two days from ‘green light’ given and delivered to the port storage area for loading onboard the vessel. At the port, all cargo to be stowed and secured on deck was covered with water-resistant tarpaulin for the long voyage into the Great Lakes. The Krøll heavy tower crane - which is designed to work in higher winds than conventional cranes- is now on the way to enter service in Canada soon.”

     R&B Global Projects Charters Shipments for Windblades from China to the Black Sea

    R&B Global Projects Ltd, member of the Project Logistics Alliance for Albania, Bosnia, Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia, has been contracted to handle an ongoing delivery of wind blades, from Da Feng and Shanghai (China), to the Chornomorsk port (previously named Ilichevsk port) in the Ukrainian Black Sea. The project has run successfully so far for the majority of this year and will continue to run towards the end of 2019.

    Each wind blade has a minimum length of 67m and can go up to more than 75m long. Each shipment consists of between 6 and 12 blades. R&B Global is tasked with the challenge of chartering the most suitable ships & carriers, taking these blades on deck, with consideration to the length and special structure. So far they have chartered several ships for this, with more to come on a roughly monthly basis throughout 2019.

    In the attached photos, we can see the transport and loading process that took place in July in Shanghai. Because of the long deck-stowage of the cargo on the ships, the routing of the ship is more or less limited by this, leaving the vessel no more space/time to deviate a lot, so R&B Global tries always to arrange direct sailings, which makes the client happy!

    Congratulations R&B Global Projects on this contract, and we wish you continued success with the remaining shipments!

    Bohnet Transports Gas Turbine in Germany

    In March 2019, Bohnet GmbH, partner for the Project Logistics Alliance, transported a gas turbine from Passau to Burghausen, Germany. In order to bring the gas turbine to the finish line on the track, it was necessary to load it in front of 2 bridges from a 20-axle trailer (Scheuerle Inter Combi) to a 30-axle trailer (Goldhofer THP / UT) to load. After the bridge crossing, the gas turbine was taken over again with the 20 axle trailer for the onward journey. For this reason, several days road closures were necessary.

    The dimensions and weight of the trailer utilised were respectively:
    20 axle trailer: 63,50 x 5,15 x 6,35m and 395 tonnes
    30 axle trailer: 67,50 x 6,90 x 6,80m and 400 tonnes
    Looking back at the project, Bohnet GmbH would like to once again thank all those who made this project possible.

    Congratulations again to partner Bohnet on the successful project!
