Super ODCs delivered to ADNOC Refinery by Total Movements

Feb 22, 2024

Total Movements, a member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) in India, managed a demanding Port to Door movement which was safely executed considering the critical cargo dimensions (having a diameter of about 18m) from India up to the project site in UAE.

A spokesperson for the company explained: “Loading the ODCs weighing 615 ton and 361 ton plus its accessories onto the vessel at the load port in India, shipping from India to UAE, unloading and discharging the ODCs onto the barge, barging to the jetty near the project site, rolling off and transporting to the project site was all our scope of work.

The major highlights of this project involved:
1. Owing to the cargo's critical dimensions, a thorough inspection and technical study was done to plan the entire transportation scheme.
2. Sourcing a suitable vessel capable of loading such large pieces within the tight laycan.
3. Arrangement of suitable approved Barges and Tugs at UAE for safe receipt of the Cargo.
4. Co-ordination with multiple authorities in UAE to accomplish the operation.
5. Execution of Contingency plans to mitigate cyclonic weather conditions.
