Conveyor Logistics completes movement of pressure vessels

Conveyor Logistics, our Members from Bangladesh, have recently been working on a project as the logistics and transportation service provider in partnership with Daher Technologies, France, employed by the main contractor Suez OTV Veolia – a joint venture of Suez International and OTV Veolia.

The cargo, pressure vessels, arrived in Chittagong Port on Flat Rack containers which were discharged from mother vessel to port jetty site. Featuring large dimensions, the pressure vessels were unsuitable for road transportation and had to be transported by waterway on tow-barge.

Conveyor were responsible for customs clearance, loading on the tow-barge from a private jetty at Chattogram.

A temporary jetty was built on the bank of the Shitalakshiya river, nearby the project site, to discharge the cargo by using a 150 ton capacity lattice-boom, crawler crane, which was set on that barge.

Total weight of the pressure vessels was 91,800 MT and total volume of the pressure vessels measured approximately 741 cbm.

Four units of 9.5 meter long, 4.2 meter wide and 4.1 meter high pressure vessels were received at Chittagong Port on one flat tow-barge and were transported by waterway from Chittagong Port to the Water Treatment Plant project site at Gandharbpur, Rupganj, Narayanganj.

The distance from the Chittagong Port to the Project Site was approximately 290 km.

The pressure vessels were hauled, from temporary jetty to the project site at Gandharbpur, by mechanical low-bed trailers.
