EGL scope of work: Unloading of Cargo in Damietta Port, Port Shift, In-Land Transportation to the Site and Jacking/Skidding to Foundations.
- Project Execution
On the 2nd April 2019 Egyptian Global Logistics (EGL), subsidiary of KADMAR GROUP completed offloading, receiving at the port storage area, backloading, transporting to the site and jacking/skidding of 2 transformers via Damietta port for Damietta Furniture City Power Stations designed to increase the production of the most productive furniture city in Egypt.
Damietta is considered a diamond of furniture manufacturing in Egypt. With the lowest unemployment rate all over Egypt, it’s a well-known area for fine art and handy crafted furniture exporting more than 50% of its products worldwide.
In addition to the above services, EGL (Kadmar Group) arranged:
- Daily toolbox meetings, preparation of cargo safety zones, use of own safety equipment to avoid damages to the cargo, obtaining the road and traffic police permits.
- Transporting was arranged in harsh winter conditions with heavy rain in a very soft jelly soil area.
The site was located on Damietta Port Said coastal road about 40 km from the port. It was a quite challenging operation scheme which was performed and completed despite the difficult conditions. The most difficulties were during the Jacking/Skidding which wasn’t easy due to a lot of challenges:
1. Site operation/execution area was very narrow with limited space for trailers manoeuvres and very soft jelly soil.
2. Total skidding distance from the trailer position to the foundation was around 19 meters.
Thanks to EGL Project Team for cooperation. EGL continues to impress the market with the well-trained staff along with the latest fleet equipment and technology in Egypt.
EGL achieved this success through careful planning without sacrificing safety aspects.
