Altogether the shipment included approx. 1,500 FRT plant sections for a flue gas cleaning plant in Las Ventanas, Chile, including 15 SOC container ex FCA Germany, air freight ex FCA Germany as well as 1,000 FRT ex FOB Nhava Sheva.
The largest component of the shipment ex Nhava Sheva had a length of 18 m, a diameter of 6 m and a relatively minor weight of 30 tons. This component was the biggest challenge within the shipment, because for the oncarriage to the jobsite (approx. 6 – 8 km far away of the port) the only possibility for POD, due to the diameter, was the port Quintero, Chile, which has a limited depth. The proximity of the jobsite to the port Codelco Quintero was therefore advantage and disadvantage at the same time.
However, after a long preparation, various talks and meetings at the customer site, we have performed the order technically properly, complete and free of damages.
