Trans Global Projects’ office in Perth, Western Australia, celebrated its first anniversary with three contract awards, adding to the group’s existing successful venture in Australasia as a whole.<\/p>\n\n

Established to service the burgeoning oil, gas and mining markets in Western Australia, the Perth office has secured three major contracts during its first year of operation, demonstrating first and foremost the expertise and knowledge of the company’s personnel, as well as the vibrant nature of the region.<\/p>\n\n

The awards consisted of two major project logistics management contracts, one for rapid growth iron ore development projects in Western Australia itself and one for a gas compression facility in Oman being engineered in Perth.  The latter project will eventually deliver 75 million standard cubic feet per day of treated sweet gas on behalf of a supermajor oil company.<\/p>\n\n

All three contracts are ongoing.<\/p>\n\n

Trans Global Projects is providing full-scale logistics management on a fast-track project for a major international oil operating company.<\/p>\n\n

The platform project serves one of the largest North Sea oil discoveries in the last decade and is the largest ongoing project on the UK Continental Shelf at present.<\/p>\n\n

Scope of work includes the delivery of all procured equipment, including the steel and the heavy units, from various worldwide origins to Hartlepool, UK.  In addition, Trans Global Projects has managed a temporary warehouse facility in nearby Newcastle-upon-Tyne to accept peak delivery cargoes and relieve the pressure of material deliveries at the fabrication yard.<\/p>\n\n

The contract commands a demanding and comprehensive delivery programme designed to ensure the jacket and module construction schedule remain on course. This includes various Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) linked to different delivery time frames (the shortest being only two days from release of cargo to delivery to site).<\/p>\n\n

To date, after handling in excess of 1,500 individual releases, not a single incident of liquidated damage has been incurred.<\/p>\n\n

A particularly unusual cargo item has been successfully delivered to South Korea.<\/p>\n\n

Trans Global Projects was recently contracted to fix the full charter of a heavy lift vessel to transport a ship-unloader. <\/p>\n\n

Ship-unloaders are used to discharge bulk materials from large ships cleanly and in an environmentally friendly way, removing problems of dust and noise pollution in ports where they operate.<\/p>\n\n

The module was broken down into smaller sections for shipping.  Nevertheless each of the main pieces still stood over 15m in height, while also requiring substantial transport engineering to ensure a safe overall load, lashing and discharge operation was achieved.  
\n
\nThe chartered vessel loaded the cargo in Zhangjiagang, China, with safe delivery taking place just four days later in Ulsan, Korea. The ship-unloader was then assembled directly to its operating position on the quayside from the deck of the heavy lift vessel.

The successful delivery of approximately 80,000 freight tonnes of cargo to meet a challenging timescale – with time to spare – is now being celebrated.<\/p>\n\n

The contract, awarded early in 2009, was for the freight forwarding of cargo in relation to the reconstruction of the second largest power plant in Azerbaijan.<\/p>\n\n

Located midway between Baku and the Iranian border, the existing thermal power plant - considered by the Azeri government to be a project of national importance - was being replaced with higher capacity combined cycle units.<\/p>\n\n

The shipment of equipment was required on a fast-track basis, with complete logistics services to transport the cargo from worldwide locations to the job site.  Scope of work also included establishing comprehensive storage and handling facilities at a Black Sea port for transhipping oversize and heavy lift items.  Several modern deep-sea heavy lift vessels were chartered to deliver this cargo to the facility in anticipation of the April opening of the Volga-Don river canal system, through which the majority of equipment was shipped prior to its seasonal closure in November.  
\n 
\nCargo was subsequently loaded onto a number of chartered specialist sea-river vessels for delivery through the waterway to a private terminal in Baku, before final overland carriage to the job site.  To balance time and cost savings, thirty per cent of the overall cargo was also transported by road or rail from the port of Poti, Georgia, directly to the job site.
