Record pressure vessels moved on Cometto MSPE

Record pressure vessels moved on Cometto MSPE

Italian engineering company Fagioli S.p.A. recently handled the transport of two huge vessels. It was the biggest project ever done within the port of Marghera.

The two hydrocracking reactors with a combined total weight of more than 3000t have been manufactured at Italian ATB Riva Calzoni sites located in Roncadelle and Venice. From there, Fagioli moved them to the port from where they were then shipped to Nigeria. The vessels are destined to the first private Nigerian refinery of the Dangote Refining Ltd company.

Each pressure vessel, among the largest ever produced in the world for the petrochemical sector, has a weight of 1,535t and measures 60 meters in length. This sets a record for the Italian port, from which no heavier shipments have ever been carried out before.

The transport project of the reactors from the plant to the sea terminal has been managed by Fagioli S.p.A.. In accordance with the ground pressure restrictions onsite, 72 axles of Cometto MSPE 40t were combined. In total, the self-propelled transporters with electronic steering formed two convoys of more than 60 meters in length, 8.5 meters in width and 10 meters in height each.

The Cometto MSPE is able to fulfill any cargo requirement, without limits of payload capacity and size, offering the best maneuverability and efficiency. The full interchangeability and expandability of the system help to satisfy any customer’s need.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?

Single Issues

If you prefer to purchase individual issues (one at a time), you will still have the ability to do so, both online (via the website), or by calling our offices +44 (0) 1572 3450872. Orders for single issues received before the pre-publication deadline will be mailed along with the subscribers.
