Total Movements, THLG member for India, was involved with this project & its planning since quite some time. To ensure a seamless operation, Total Movements attended a meeting involving all stakeholders like ISGEC Hitachi Zosen, Exxon, Worley at Antwerp last year.
The cargo was planned to be moved in April 2020, but a sudden nationwide lockdown due to COVID-19 threw all our plans out of gear.
Our team had to re-work the plans considering lockdowns which restrictions in the movement of men, machines & material.
Furthermore, the movement of 6 nos Gofiner Reactors of 170MT each from supplier's works to Dahej faced very heavy rains due to Nisarga cyclone. To add to it, the loading on the vessel was extremely challenging because of heavy swell at Dahej due to monsoon. However, with the support of all the stakeholders involved, we loaded the cargo safely on the planned vessel. The cargo was delivered safely and timely at Antwerp.
