Pipes arrive at Georgemas by rail, where our team unloads them directly onto the lorry or onto the storage at site. Pipes are 18 and 27 m long with 1472 and 1253 mm outer diameter and each pipe weighs around 13 tons. The project will continue for 8 month and we expect to load and transport over 600 pipes.
The team uses 2 cranes to lift the pipes from the rail wagons.
We have introduced Dhatec pipe carrier system in both pipe transportation on trucks and on site storage. This system is completely safe and flexible to store and to transport pipes. It can be easily adjusted to different pipe diameters.
Inese Rage, the HSEQ manager, said: “Due to the length of the vehicle and load the route had to be planned carefully, in particular moving through the streets of Wick. The escort vehicles had to close the street for other vehicles. ”
