Silos delivery Avonmouth

Transcar delivered seven silos to the Avonmouth Waste to Energy Plant. Whilst this order did not pose significant challenges to the ship and her operation given their weight, the configuration and size of these units  generated complexities within the onshore delivery schedule. Accordingly, advance planning and coordination were required due to the oversize elements. A route survey was carried out prior to arrival, which highlighted a number of obstacles between the port and site, whereby a number of overhead piping racks, electrical wires and telephone lines had to be removed to allow clearance. The tallest pieces required a series of articulated low-loaders, whereas the smaller pieces were transported using semi-low loaders. Transcar Projects cooperated with the various authorities including the local Police and council, Western Power and BT Openreach in order to obtain permits for moving the cargo to site. All of this was driven by time sensitive schedules to ensure all applications and approvals were lodged in a manner that allowed aligning permits for that one specific day.

Antonov 124 full charter – Rotors from Qatar to Germany

One of the many challenges at the end of shutdowns where material and equipment is channelled for servicing is the lead time within which material can be decommissioned and shipped back to its manufacturing plant for refurbishment so that it can be turned around efficiently. Transcar Project arranged for the full charter of an Antonov 124 plus the critical road transport at either end.

Refinery project (Vietnam)

One of over 10 charter vessel voyages which were arranged by Transcar throughout the project duration, the most challenging of which was a combination of four various load-ports intra North Europe and Mediterranean/Adriatic sea, with over 20 vendors supplying the cargo simultaneously. Transcar worked in collaboration with the carrier to ensure best utilisation of the vessel hold space, that eventually led to a safe and an optimum stowage.
