Longest steel tubes ever unloaded and transported

On behalf of Ballast Nedam Suriname, Kuldipsingh Equipment NV has transported 300 steel tubes for Staatsolie REP within three weeks.

Before the transport could take place, the tubes were first unloaded from a boat. With a 100-ton crane the tubes were hoisted on the quay. After this, a 120 ton crane neatly stacked the tubes so they were ready for transport. Within 48 hours the unloading was safely completed.

The tubes had a considerable length of 40 meters and weigh nearly 8 tons each. A difficult job to unload and transport.

During the transport of the tubes other traffic on the road was hindered to a minimum because we transported the tubes only at night (weekdays). With 5 tractors, extendable trailers, 2 escort cars, 1 service car and 4 motorbikes of the Surveillance Department, the total length of the convoy was 320 meters long at each run.
