Worldwide Project Consortium

Gas pipeline project equipment from Europe to Kazakhstan

Oct 4, 2015

For many years Globalink, member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) for Kazakhstan, has established sustainable partnerships with leading global companies, carrying out industrial and energy projects in the Central Asia and Middle East. The company handled the movement of staggering volumes of equipment with providing all the associated project logistics services for oil and gas industry in the region.

Globalink Projects Division was contracted to transport compressor equipment for an Asian Gas Pipeline Project.

350 truck loads of over-dimensional cargo with a total weight of 15,000 tonnes were delivered from Ports in Ilichevsk, Ukraine and Astrakhan, Russia to Almaty, Kazakhstan with further door delivery to the project site. Large scale project shipment required the arrangement of non-standard special equipment at a stage of loading, unloading, and the haulage itself. At ports the project equipment, which biggest piece was about 4.5 meters high, was reloaded from vessels onto trucks with floating cranes and heavy duty trawls.

With well-coordinated work of all Globalink divisions, their specialists immediately arranged road permits, organized military escort for safe transportation of cargo to the destination, swift customs clearance of the cargo in Almaty, and door delivery to the jobsite well ahead of a schedule.
