Italy – Russia, 2019
In early 2018, RTL together with its Italian partner DSV won a major tender for the organization and forwarding support of project equipment transportation under the largest investment project in Perm region, Russia. For almost two years, numerous items of equipment are being delivered from European countries to the Russian Federation for the construction of the "Ammonia – urea – melanin" chemical complex to be commissioned in 2021.
In the summer of 2019, RTL successfully transported the following heavy equipment for the project:
- Carbon dioxide absorber (assembled item weight: 232.26 tons, assembled item dimensions: 50.93 x 8.20 x 8.20 m);
- Flue gas cooler (assembled item weight: 113.40 tons, assembled item dimensions: 24.06 x 8.20 x 8.20 m).
Our company provides customers with a wide range of freight forwarding services. That is why while studying the weight and size characteristics and schemes of goods, as well as working out the route of transportation and selecting the necessary equipment, RTL's engineering department concluded that the cargo should be split into parts to be transported on public roads in the territory of the Russian Federation. Thus, 14 months before the start of the project of transportation of bulky goods, the specialists of RTL engineering department held a joint meeting with the representatives of the equipment manufacturer, where they suggested dividing the cargo into sections to reduce the size of the equipment to be transported. After agreeing on that, the two packages were divided into 10 and 6 sections respectively. RTL engineers performed the calculations, and the project implementation department proceeded to the transportation of oversized heavy equipment from Europe to the Russian Federation.
