EXG’s cargo collectively weighed 300 tonnes and had a total volume of 1,426 cubic metres.

Two units were 40.7 x 3.5 x 3.75 metres each and the other two each measured 12.5 x 4.15 x 3.45 metres.

The complexity of handling such massive cargo requires meticulous planning and execution, EXG said.

EXG was tasked with port handling and co-ordinated with the relevant authorities for documents and permits.

Key challenge

One of the challenges faced in this project was finding a suitable heavy lift vessel to transport the four heat exchangers.

The company said the journey from India’s east coast to Egypt involved careful co-ordination and efficient utilisation of resources.

EXG chose a heavy lift break bulk vessel as the best mode of transport.

“Throughout the entire process, EXG prioritised safety and precision. Handling critical cargo responsibly is not just a commitment but a responsibility,” said a spokesperson for the company.

“The loading procedure was executed with utmost care and precision, ensuring the safety of the cargo and those involved in the operation.”
