INCOTEC CARGO delivered the column from Italy

INCOTEC CARGO delivered reactor column with its length of 45 meters, diameter 5 meters, weight 150 tons produced by Walter Tosto S.P.A. from Italy to Nizhnekamsk. The oversized unit was loaded in the port of Ortona (Italy) on board of m/v “Kalana”. This shipment included other overweight equipment such as: 2 waste-heat boilers weighing 120 tons each and sulphur condensers weighing from 40 to 53 tons each.

In the port of Saint Petersburg the discharge was carried out in Petrolesport terminal by means of combined mobile cranes (Liebherr) with their lifting capacity of 104 tons each. Later on the equipment was reloaded on barge 803 (type 81100) and delivered to berth in Nizhnekamsk. The transportation of column, waste-heat boilers and sulphur condensers to TANECO’s job site will be implemented by means of Self Propelled Modular Transporter Scheuerle.
SPMT are modular trailers that can be mounted to each other so that it is possible to make any configuration necessary for transporting a load of any size and weight. SPMT are not pulled by a truck like conventional trailers, but they are equipped with a Power Pack Unit which provides the propulsion. The SPMT come in modules of 4 axle lines or 6 axle lines. Each axle line has 2 axles and each axle has 2 tires. One of the major advantages of SPMT’s is the great maneuverability of the trailers. The trailer combination can drive forward, backward, sideways, diagonal and can even rotate on the spot (carrousel).
This was not the only experience. In June 2010 by means of Scheuerle’s SPMT INCOTEC CARGO arranged the unique loading operations on board of the barge and simultaneous transportation of two hydrocracking reactors weighing 2500 tons in total. The uniqueness was that till that time there was no any Russian transport company dealing with such heavyweight cargo. The weight of each reactor is 1250 tons. Its length is more than 37 meters, width 7.74 meters and height 6.5 meters.
