Lift and Shift India transported 3 LC Max Reactors

Lift and Shift India, a leading heavy-lift hauler and project logistics company, operating over 7 decades, continues its record-breaking streak in 2021, despite the Covid-19 restrictions. The company transported 3 LC Max Reactors - said to be the world’s heaviest reactors, with a weight of 2200 MT / 2208 MT / 2313 MT. They were fabricated by Larsen & Toubro Heavy Engineering Division, Hazira (Gujarat), for delivery to Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL), Visakhapatnam, for the Residue Upgradation Facility project, a prestigious project of the Government of India.

The scope of work involved movement of 5 equipment including the 3 critical reactors, from L&T HED fabrication yard to the jetty in Hazira, roll-on to the barge, barging from L&T jetty to Hindustan Shipyard Limited (HSL) jetty in Visakhapatnam covering 2100 nautical miles, roll-off from barge to HSL jetty and road movement from HSL jetty to HPCL refinery.

The equipment weighed 650 MT to 2313 MT per piece. The length of the heaviest reactor was 72 m with a width of 12.2 m and height of 7.7m. The transport was done on 96 axles using 3 PPU (total of 768 tyres). The complete cargo was shipped in 3 voyages using Lift & Shift 280 class barge (2 voyages) and a 330 Class barge (1 voyage) from Larsen & Toubro jetty to HSL jetty, Visakhapatnam.

The most critical and challenging part was the last-leg movement from HSL jetty in Visakhapatnam to HPCL Refinery for moving 2760 MT, including trailer weight, the heaviest ever equipment transport on the roads of India.

Due to the dimension of the job, the road transport required dismantling of all road fixtures over 5 kms, including shifting of power line poles, complete removal of center dividers and even the walkways and other smaller fixtures on the road.

Lift & Shift, in consultation with the authorities, decided for late night movement from HSL jetty HPCL Refinery, so as to avoid causing any inconvenience to the public in view of the Covid restrictions on large gatherings. Lift & Shift used mobile light vans to lighten up the road as the entire 5 kms would have no streetlights working due to the power being shut down.

Lift & Shift thanked all the authorities, the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation, Andhra Pradesh Power Distribution Company, and the local police for their cooperation during the night movement.

Lift & Shift is known for safe and efficient delivery. Its expert team did meticulous planning from the outset to optimize the land and marine movement from Larsen & Toubro fabrication facility to HPCL Refinery, which resulted in successful execution of the project.
