Oversize project cargo being transported on river

Oversize Project Cargo Transported Via Seasonal River Route To Reach Otherwise Inaccessible Remote Destination

Huge pieces of cargo for a gas processing plant in Russia are being transported using custom designed multi-modal methods and custom designed lifting equipment. Transport from the ocean port of discharge to the inland destination involves a fleet of barges, tug boats, shallow draft pontoons and purpose built cranes. The river journey requires 21 days to navigate over 1400 miles of shallow waters. It will take 5 seasons to transport all 176,000 tons of oversize equipment needed as the river is only accessible several months each year.
