Al Faris Group has executed the complete logistics chain including receiving, storing, transporting and lifting of 30 overflow tanks which are part of the ongoing Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park project, the largest single-site solar park in the world!
Due to Industry reputation and expertise in transporting large, abnormal loads involving high complexity in planning and execution, Al Faris were recently awarded this project.
Each tank was 52m long and weighed 235t which made it an extremely big challenge for byroad transportation. The biggest challenge was to find a feasible route from Jebel Ali Port to Solar park, Al Qudra in order to transport the cargo efficiently.
The transportation was carried out with our Mercedes Arocs trucks attached to 2 files 30 axle Goldhofer THP/SL conventional hydraulic trailers with 2 tanks in one convoy. At the project site, the overflow tanks were lifted using our Liebherr 400t crawler crane along with other supporting mobile cranes which travelled a distance of more than 100m before placing the load on the foundation.
A project of this nature requires exceptionally detailed planning to orchestrate the complex activities necessary for ensuring uninterrupted safe services; from route analysis to on-road safety permissions. The route was analyzed and surveyed by our technical team. The technical support documentation, execution plans, route analysis report and HSE protocols were prepared in-house and discussed with the client prior to project execution.
