Jazan Refinery & Terminal Project II (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia)



ALTIUS transports and delivers to project site location another shipment of heavy lift & overdimensional equipment for "Jazan Refinery & Terminal Project" (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia)




ALTIUS project division successfully transported and delivery on time to the job site, to the client's satisfaction, 2x Drums of 132 tons gross weight each, 2x Heat Exchanger of 62 tons, and general cargo for the "Jazan Refinery & Terminal Project".

All the cargo was shipped from Porto Marghera (Italy) to Jizan Port (KSA) on a self-geared vessel.

Then, all the cargo was transported by road to the site through an 84-km route from the mentioned discharge port in Saudi Arabia.

For enabling the haulage of the two over-dimensional & heavy-lift units of 132 tons, civil works and road improvements had to be made, such as the construction of several by-passes for avoiding to cross over culvert bridges due to weight limitations as per local transport authorities, pulling up also power line cables due to the huge overall height of the transport convoy up to 6,30 meters high, and driving against the traffic in some parts of the route with the assistance of escort cars and local police to avoid some street obstacles.
