Transportation of two LPG storage tanks, Iraq
ALE has transported two LPG storage tanks 600km from Umm Qasr Port to Badra Oil Field, Iraq. This is the largest cargo ever transported this distance in Iraq.
The two LPG storage tanks measured 50 meters long and weighed 205t. They were shipped and ALE received the tanks at Umm Qasr port.
A route survey of the 660km itinerary was carried out and highlighted some challenging crossings, such as passing through 11 bridges.
Three prime movers and 2 x 24 axle lines of conventional trailers were used with a long trailer configuration for load spreading over the 11 bridges to Badra Oil Field.
The total transit time from port to site was 12 days.
