Project Execution

The project execution stages involved detailed planning & technical study. Our team conducted a detailed Route Survey for road transportation from ISGEC Dahej to Adani Hazira Port.

A suitable number of hydraulic axles were placed at ISGEC Dahej works for loading of 3 packages. The said packages were transported by road to Adani Hazira Port. By proper coordination with the Shipping Line, the said packages were placed under the vessel deck & secured with lashing.

The sea transportation to Haldia Port was a smooth operation monitored by our team. All 3 packages were received on hydraulic axles at Haldia Port followed by custom clearance involving the completion of port formalities.

The movement from Haldia Port to IOCL Haldia Refinery was a tedious task due to high congestion and the shutdown of the Electrified Railway Crossing & Transmission line. The same was done on a priority basis. The package was delivered in safe & sound condition to IOCL Haldia Refinery.
