Lift & Shift India Handles Heaviest Single Module of 4532 Tons for NWIS Mumbai High North Offshore ProjectWest Module: L 41.09 X W 42.31 X H 26.13 m, 3736 MT

Lift and Shift India Pvt. Ltd (LSPL), a leading heavy-lift operator and project logistics company, achieved a record-breaking milestone by handling the heaviest single Module weighing 4532 MT for the Mumbai High North Offshore Project; it is the heaviest Module fabricated in India till date.

LSPL was contracted by Larsen & Toubro Modular Fabrication Division for handling 7 Modules weighing a total of 23500 MT for NWIS Mumbai High North project. The heaviest Module weight was 4532 MT and 5 modules weight ranging from 3000 MT to 4400 MT and one module of 685 MT.

LSPL meticulously planned to complete the load-out of the 7 modules on 6 barges of 330 and 400 class within a time frame of 20 days, as missing any of the load-out dates would disturb the offshore schedule. The operation involved preparation of axles in the desired format 5 file / 6 files; preparing the barge with pre-load-out ballast, and then loading the modules onto the barge during the rising tide.

The first module preparation commenced for the East Module weighing 4432 tons which was to be shifted on 10 files axles totaling to 188 axles, from MFF2 yard to MFF1 yard over 1km and then rolled onto the barge. The module with a width of 52m was the widest module fabricated and transported. The second module, the West deck, weighing 3700 MT was loaded using 8 file axles totaling 160 axles. Both East and West Modules were of the same width.

The challenge was to arrange the load-out of the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Modules (FFSDO, LSW, and TG) which required the axles to be reconfigured with only 2 days between the load-out dates. The squeeze was due to the suitable tide requirement since FFSDO and LSW were to be loaded on the same 400 class barge.

The final Module Load-out was the Living Quarter module (LQ) a ‘7-story building’ weighing 4532 tons - the heaviest load-out handled by Lift & Shift in India.

The LQ module movement from fabrication yard to the jetty involved maneuvering a hair-pin turn with limited space for 60 m length of axles and 30.5 m width of axles. The module was transported from yard to jetty in two & half hours and the roll-on to the barge was completed within an hour.

Lift & Shift owes the successful achievement to its expert team, which was involved in meticulous planning from the bidding and pre-fabrication stage to the final operations.
