Jignesh Patel, Director- Projects, Nabros Transport, discusses the company’s capabilities in handling complex infra development projects, ably supported by tech-driven innovations, automation, and a well-structured team.

How has Nabros Transport adapted to the current restrictions and challenges posed by the pandemic?
Being in the industry for over 50 years and catering to clients from diverse sectors, Nabros has, over a period, put in place a professionally sound team of workers, which currently stands at 350 employees. The company has been regularly upgrading its capabilities with new equipment and technology to maintain its high-performance standards that meet customer expectations.

We have always been well-equipped to handle any kind of emergency, so during the pandemic too, we, at Nabros, came up with the right solutions and fulfilled all our commitments.

Which challenging projects is the company currently executing?
Nabros has a long experience in handling complex projects in different locations such as moving windmill blades of 78 meters long from the east and west coast of India.

Currently, we are moving a 472 MT generator stator of 800 MW by a girder bridge from Haridwar to Kandla Port and then from Kandla to Krishnapatnam by sea, to our client’s project location in Yadadri, which is on the east coast.

We are also moving a 9-meter-wide End Shield, which is a critical Nuclear Power equipment, by deploying specially designed and fabricated Rotating Fixtures. The equipment is being moved from L&T Hazira works in Surat to NPCIL, GHAVP, Gorakhpur, Haryana.

Our logistics division has also been involved in several end-to-end projects in countries like Ethiopia, Egypt, and Mexico, to name a few.

During breakbulk cargo transport, there are a number of uncertainties that must be managed well to mitigate the risk of damages, missed key connections, and delay penalties. How efficiently has Nabros strategized and aligned its cargo transport processes?
It is true that breakbulk cargo must be prepared taking into consideration various challenges and limitations such as construction of bypasses, placing requests for power shutdowns at certain locations, and passing electrified railway crossings safely. All these require meticulous planning and co-ordination with central and state government authorities.

We have been able to ensure smooth operations in our projects thanks to the assistance and cooperation extended by all the concerned authorities. They understand and appreciate our efforts towards the construction of infra projects which are of national importance.

As mentioned earlier, we at Nabros have always given priority to automation and real-time monitoring systems to make our operations smooth and efficient. This reduces the equipment transit time, which helps our clients to complete their projects as per the schedule.

We impart training to drivers, operators, and others in our workforce so that they can handle complex situations. Regular training is provided through renowned OEMs who train the workers on the latest technologies that have been introduced by the prime movers and the equipment manufacturers.

Nabros Transport: In the Frontline

What is the current fleet size of Nabros?
Nabros has a fleet of around 200 units of Modular Hydraulic Axle lines of brands like Goldhofer, Cometto, and TII Group. Also a large fleet of telescopic extendable trailers for exclusive transportation of windmill blades of 82-meter length. We recently acquired the first Girder Bridge manufactured in India by German company TII; it can transport equipment of up to 500 tons of single point load.

Acquiring new equipment like cranes or axle lines is a continuous process at Nabros. We foresee upcoming requirements in complex infra projects, and plan our transportation equipment well in advance.

What significant changes and developments do you envisage for India’s logistics industry over the next five years?
The logistics industry has been working closely with the MORTH ministry whose officials understand the problems facing during the transportation of heavy equipment and are always ready to assist us in the best way possible. The Government of India’s focus on making the road infrastructure a priority will make transportation hurdles easier to overcome. So, we see a positive growth of the Logistics Industry in the coming years.
