PNI Logistics, UAE, Handles Barging of 13 x 150-200 Ton Units Door via Jebal Ali Port to Dry Dock's Jetty


Project Name - FPSO
A client of Dry Docks Dubai chose PNI Logistics for this job due to our strong experience with heavy lift and barge movements in the area.

The scope of work included moving skids/modules from various fabrication yards in the UAE to Jebal Ali Port. Each local movement required performing route surveys, close coordination with transport authorities for permits, and arranging police escorts with our operations team. PNI arranged for stooling at the port yard, crane operations, and chartered tug and barge vessels to move the cargo from Jebal Ali to Dry Dock’s own jetty.

Special equipment used included a SPMT to move pipe racks from the fabrication yard in Abu Dhabi ICAD to the Liwa jetty where we then loaded onto the barge using 1 x 750 ton and 1 x 500 ton crane combilift.

Modular trailers were used to move Fiscal metering skids from the fabrication yards in Dubai to Jebel Ali port where we then loaded onto the barge using 1 x 750 ton and 1 x 500 ton crane combilift. We did synchronized jacking of the skids onto the modular trailers prior to move.

Prior to the barge movements, PNI arranged cargo lashing and securing, barge stability calculations, draft survey, towage survey, GA (General Arrangement) plan, and all port permissions. All movements went according to plan with safe work rules applied and cargo was delivered without exception within the agreed time frames and budget.
