The Meticulous Way of Handling Lashing & Crating at CSS

The lashing & crating division of CSS Group, has successfully completed the lashing job of 3 coated steel pipes on a 40 feet flat rack recently. The specialty of the job was that the coating was of high sensitive material and upon the request of the client it was ensured that the apt lashing options and materials were used to ensure safe passage of the cargo. The cargo being out of gauge, the team had to secure and lash the cargo at Hamriya Free Zone and issue lashing certificate for the same as well. The job was meticulously planned and executed in matter of hours.

The crating job which was completed at Dubai Investment Park (DIP) was for air freight shipment. The commodity was Structural Steel items; CSS Homeward Bound was involved in bundling the cargo and then pack them in air worthy crates which was prepared by the team in-house. The pieces of crates were prepared at CSS warehouse and assembled the job at site. “Lashing & Crating jobs usually demands lot of skill and patience. It takes long time to create a team like CSS Lashing & Crating, and give maximum satisfaction to the client,” said Suku Sudhakaran, General Manager in Charge of Lashing & Crating division.

CSS Projects, Oil & Energy Undertakes Transport of Hatch Cover

The team at CSS Projects, Oil & Energy, recently undertook a hatch cover movement from Jebel Ali port to the dry docks Dubai. The weight of the cargo was 24 tons with dimensions 13.25 x 8.20 x 1.10 m. The width of the cargo in this case was the main criterion to be looked into. The entire operation had to be scheduled meticulously as it had to connect a vessel coming in for repairs at the Dubai dry docks. The team received the unit from vessel directly and had to move the unit on wide body low bed trailer with special permissions  and during specific timings provided by RTA (1 AM – 3 AM) with police escorts. The efficiency of the Dubai police system was once again displayed when they tactically handled the traffic critical control points for the safe passage of this unit throughout the movement ensuring least difficulty to the other road users. “High professionalism has to be displayed in handling critical jobs in Projects. The proven expertise and commitment could be the major factors why people rely on CSS Projects team when it comes to complicated assignments”, commented Raj George Sr. VP, Projects Oil & Energy, when he was asked about this particular move by Lighthouse.

308 Tonne Transformer Movement

The team at CSS Projects, Oil & Energy, recently undertook a transformer movement from Derince, Turkey to the Ras Al Khor substation in Dubai. The volume of the cargo was 1000 CBM, and included a 308 tonne power transformer and accessories. Given that the weight of the transformer was greater than the crane gear a special 650 tonne crawler crane had to be arranged at both origin and destination ports to arrange the loading and unloading of the transformer.  As the shipment was time sensitive, the team at CSS had to ensure that there were no delays at any stage of the shipment until the final destination. Once it reached the port of destination, the transformer was discharged onto a 14 axle hydraulic trailer at Jebel Ali port and was then moved to the electric substation for final installation by jacking & skidding method. “This movement is a great example of how the team here at CSS Projects, Oil & Energy is able to handle movements that require multiple special handling methods, especially in the case of time sensitive shipments. The experience the team consists of gives them the confidence to immediately address the situation on hand and provide the client with the most effective solution in the given time frame,” added Raj George Sr. VP, Projects Oil & Energy.

Booming With Developments


Petronet LNG Ltd, the country’s largest importer of liquid gas, has received its maiden cargo at its recently constructed Kochi import terminal in Kerala on August 2013.  The vessel, “Wilenergy,” carrying around 1 lakh cubic metres of LNG in its liquid form (liquefied natural gas or LNG) arrived from RasGas in Qatar.

With this, the Rs 4,200-crore terminal would be ready for operations.

The Kochi terminal, however, will operate at just 8 per cent of its capacity in the first year of operation as pipelines taking gas to customers in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu are not ready, they said, adding that the company plans to import 2 cargoes or shiploads of LNG at the terminal this year.

In year-2, the terminal is expected to operate at 75 percent capacity when the pipeline connecting Kochi to Mangalore and Bangalore are built. Also, state-owned GAIL is planning to connect this pipeline to Chennai.

Kochi terminal is currently being connected to two main customers — Bharat Petroleum’s Kochi refinery and the Fertilizers and Chemicals Travancore Limited (FACT), which are in the process of converting their facilities to run on natural gas.

At least 70 per cent of the total capacity, or 3.5 million tons a year, is required for the terminal to function at minimum optimum efficiency.
