{"total":62,"offset":"6","order":"availableFrom","news":[{"id":"69","headline":"Project-critical cargo shipped to Kurdistan","blurb":"Newsroom","content":"

Some of the most critical items for a major energy project in the Kurdistan region of Iraq are currently being shipped to one of the world’s largest unexplored onshore hydrocarbon basins. The project comprises an estimated 50,000 freight tonnes of equipment for the construction of a Central Processing Facility.<\/p>\n\n

Regional instability has led to a significant downturn in the number of similar schemes in the area, making the success of this project all the more vital. Despite these issues, the logistics supply chain has been particularly effective and free of delay.<\/p>\n\n

The cargo from worldwide origins is being transhipped via ports in Turkey, where it has to be temporarily cleared under a tax exemption scheme. This is being closely monitored by Trans Global Projects.<\/p>\n\n

The journey to Kurdistan, overseen by the Trans Global Projects offices in Erbil, Kurdistan, then continues by land, where trucking of oversized items has to be carefully planned and engineered as the site is in a mountainous region with narrow and potentially dangerous roads which are made all the more treacherous by extremes of weather.<\/p>\n\n

So far, the largest individual items transported over the 900km land route to the site were the control room buildings, that were each 25.6m x 5.3m x 4.25m (LWH) and weighed 64mt, however Trans Global Projects has previously moved items as wide as 5.80m and as high as 5.15m high along the same route.<\/p>\n\n

The project is expected to be complete by March 2016, with initial production anticipated at 30,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day once operations are under way.<\/p>\n\n

As part of its continuing commitment to meeting the highest industry standards, Trans Global Projects is following the current standards’ revisions with interest.<\/p>\n\n

The improvement of the standards – which are the international benchmarks for business quality, environmental and health and safety management – will suit the logistics company’s method of work, which already involves the use of an integrated management system. TGP’s Integrated Management System provides a single, coherent vision of the Context of the organisation, assesses threats to all its Objectives through a single risk assessment process and focusses actions against the identified Risks and Opportunities. The draft documents provide a perfect landscape for this approach.<\/p>\n\n

Trans Global Projects is registered to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 with Intertek, a UKAS-accredited certification body, and will be working with them to transition to the new revisions (including ISO 45001, which will replace OHSAS 18001) as soon as the final versions are published. However, as part of ongoing improvements a cross-reference to the Annex SL model, used for new standards, has already been incorporated into the company’s integrated management system.<\/p>\n\n

An efficient, effective and responsive system helps the company to deliver leading project logistics management as reliably and responsibly as possible.<\/p>\n\n

As well as being a useful way to demonstrate compliance, incorporating the new standards will also make it easier to strengthen the firm’s emerging business continuity management and information security management elements, ready for ISO 22301 and ISO 27001 registration.<\/p>\n\n

Nine shipments in total are due to carry the parts for the 17.6 metre diameter TBM to the undersea highway construction site in Hong Kong, with the first cargo - the 460MT cutter head - being the heaviest item.<\/p>\n\n

Trans Global Projects has expanded its presence in Europe with the acquisition of a leading Swiss logistics firm.<\/p>\n\n

Project specialist NATCO AG has been operating in Switzerland for more than 35 years, successfully positioning itself as an exclusive, high quality service provider in the industrial projects and heavy lift sector. Air freight is a further specialisation of the company, while road and sea cargo services are also provided. Offering a similar range of services as Trans Global Projects does on an international platform, the two companies have a common multi-national customer base, enabling the merged firm to offer an enhanced service to clients.<\/p>\n\n

NATCO’s devotion to providing a high standard of service, combined with its central European location in Switzerland, made the company an excellent choice as Trans Global Projects’ first major acquisition.<\/p>\n\n

A significant step in the group’s continued development, the multi-million pound deal completes on 1 January 2015.<\/p>\n\n

NATCO AG will continue to operate as usual, with re-branding proposed later in the year. See www.natco.ch<\/a> to find out more about the organisation.<\/p>\n\n
