Boxco Logistics successfully handled the first leg of the Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL) refinery project for Larsen & Toubro Hydrocarbon Engineering Limited (L&T HCE).
The project involved multimodal transport of 8 ODC and Heavy lift packages from the L & T Hazira plant to the HPCL Vizag refinery. First the packages were moved from L &T Hazira to Adani port in Hazira where they were loaded on Boxco’s SPMT’s; then they were shipped on a Jumbo vessel M.V Fairmaster to the Hindustan Shipyard Limited (HSL) Jetty in Vizag and then moved by road to HPCL Vizag.
The scope of the contract included obtaining permissions for berthing a heavy lift vessel at the HSL Jetty which is a Naval Shipyard. This is an extremely difficult task and the J M BAXI GROUP utilized all its resources to obtain the permission. The project required culverts to be constructed and built by-passes for smooth passage of the cargo.
This project showcased Boxco’s elaborate equipment-base and its expertise in organising heavy-lift ocean freight and its operational capabilities. The second shipment under this project will be executed in June 2019 involving a huge 798 MT Fractionator column.
