The consignment is a 121 ton, 35m-long vacuum unit
UAE-based Gulftainer, one of the world’s leading privately-owned independent port operators, recently successfully unloaded a 121 ton, 35m-long vacuum unit at its Iraq Container Terminal (ICT).
The unit, manufactured for Midland Refineries Company in the UAE, was shipped via the port of Jebel Ali to Iraq, where it will be utilised by Najaf Refinery.
The shipping of such units signals a rebound in business for Gulftainer and other port operations around the globe, whose supply chain was affected by the pandemic. “Our team worked closely with key customers to ensure the seamless shipping and unloading of the vacuum unit,” commented Nic Gray, Managing Director, Gulftainer’s Operations in Iraq.
