deugro handled heaviest single piece at Soekarno Hatta Airport in Jakarta

deugro Indonesia had been awarded a contract for handling the crane and unloading assistance for a 79 tons heavy lift.

Jakarta Soekarno Hatta Airport was congested and had already exceeded its capacity. The initial landing permit request was not granted, due to non-capacities. The alternative, Airport Halim, was unavailable. This caused a delay of nine days for the aircraft and cargo in Thailand, in which a narrow time window of five hours had been given. The normal ground time for this type of aircraft was estimated to be seven hours, including customs/immigration, technical assistance, refuelling, taxiing and unloading preparation.

Being aware of the time critical time constraint, deugro extended its working scope from crane and unloading assistance to the entire ground coordination with the involved parties, such as airport authority, ground handling agent, trucking crew, crane crew and airline crew. The coordination and task scheduling resulted in completing the job ahead of schedule. The plane arrived with a delay of 45 minutes and was able to depart 35 minutes earlier than anticipated. All parties involved carried out their duties in a time efficient manner and exceeded the client’s efficiency expectations.

PNG LNG Project, Papua New Guinea – 1,500 Shipments Milestone

deugro Projects Australia, working together with deugro in Papua New Guinea (PNG), has thus far executed over 1,500 international shipments in support of the PNG LNG Project in Papua New Guinea, specifically for the project’s Hides Gas Conditioning Plant. This milestone was achieved towards the end of April 2013.

Besides the international forwarding and expediting scope handled via the support of deugro’s global office network, deugro is also tasked with the challenging onshore logistics component within PNG.

The local deugro team in PNG provides the following logistics services in support of the PNG LNG Project:

1. Import customs clearance in Port Moresby;

2. Transport of general cargoes from wharf to deugro laydown yard;

3. Transport of over 100+ heavy and out-of-gauge packages using deugro’s own heavy haulage equipment and operators;

4. Construction and management of two purpose-built laydown and storage facilities at Jacksons International Airport in Port Moresby;

5. The implementation of project-specific QHSES system for all deugro and subcontractor activity on the project;

6. Providing Technical and Transport Engineering services through the support of deugro’s in-house Transport Engineering Department (TED).

As the PNG LNG Project progresses, the team has now entered the final phase of the project which sees the use of the Antonov AN124 aircraft to fly the cargo packages to the job site in the PNG Highlands.

After an approximate 800 km flight from Port Moresby to the PNG Highlands, deugro is tasked with managing the interim storage and handling of these packages, and ultimately transporting all equipment to the final job site via deugro’s own specialized multi axle heavy haul trailer fleet.

This unique “Air-Bridge” concept certainly adds to the challenges of working in PNG.

A critical component in the planning and assembling of the transport team executing the project has been our forever keen and highly capable in-house Transport Engineering Department (TED).

A special mention of thanks goes to deugro’s valued contractors and official organizations within PNG who have supported the in-country operations as the project moves from phase to phase.

Thanks to all participants for their support during these days. Many well known business partners and potentially interested customers from all over the world visited our deugro booth to talk to us and gather information about deugro’s team of the best minds. This year the deugro booth was redesigned with heavy lift highlights and a special focus on deugro owned equipment.

Another equally interesting attraction was the “deugro owned pizzaiolo”. Our colleague, Mr. Carlo Servetti – Sales Manager deugro Basel – changed his suit & tie to his pizzaiolo outfit and got into action. The delicious smell of fresh baked Pizza filled the floors of the exhibiton halls and attracted the guests and customers. Almost 500 slices of Pizza were served during the event. A special thanks to Carlo and the extraordinary great show!

deugro moves a disassembled Tunnel Boring Machine from Schwanau, Germany to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

deugro Brazil was awarded for the transport of a disassembled TBM (Tunnel Boring Machine). In assembled condition the TBM will be 120 meter long and being used for drilling a section of 4.6 Kilometers tunnel called Linha 4 Sul.

Linha 4 Sul connects South Zone of Rio de Janeiro and Barra da Tijuca – home of the 2016 Olympics Games in Rio de Janeiro. Drilling works are scheduled for completion in December 2015 and inauguration of the Line 4 for June 2016 two months ahead of the opening ceremony of this major event.

deugro Stuttgart excellently coordinated the deliveries of the cargoes to Antwerp from its origin Schwanau in Germany via Port of Kehl by using three barges.

deugro’s responsibility only ended after cargoes were delivered and offloaded at the jobsite. The challenge was to follow the delivery sequence piece by piece so that the TBM could be assembled inside the tunnel thereafter accordingly.
