Roll Group was awarded by NEM Energy BV for the transportation of two boiler blocks and two combustor units from Taiwan to Malaysia. This project was a perfect example of an ideal Roll Group assignment, allowing us to put to work the combined capabilities of our in-house engineering department and our experienced heavy transportation teams, enabling us to offer a complete tailor-made solution by both land and sea.

The preparations

NEM Energy BV involved the Roll Group at an early stage which made it possible for us to devise a smart, safe and fast solution for this specific case. Our engineers worked together with the NEM team to produce a precisely fitting sea fastening design which was integrated into the boiler block.

In total we will transport two boiler blocks, each weighing nearly 2,000 tons, two combustor units, various air fan ducting structures and multiple steel frames. Because of the weight of the cargo, Roll Group engineers had to reinforce the loadout quay as in its original state the quay strength was insufficient to handle the load. For this, we used 150 pieces of steel beams, enabling us to spread the load over a larger area.

The loading

Roll-Lift used 72 axle lines of SPMT’s to roll the boiler blocks and combustor units on board the RollDock Sky. For the remainder of the cargo we used the vessel’s own heavy lift cranes.
