Over 200,000MT of cargo carried through Russian Inland Water System to the Tengiz field
P&O Maritime Logistics, a Dubai-based marine solutions and logistics company, has completed a three-year long project supporting the development of the Tengiz field in Kazakhstan, one of the world’s six largest oil fields, ahead of schedule.
In 2016, P&O Maritime Logistics entered a consortium with Blue Water Shipping to provide a unique class of vessel which meets the specific challenges of delivering oil production equipment through the Russian Inland Waterway System (RIWS) on behalf of its client, Tengizchevroil (TCO).
The project saw the bespoke design and construction of 20 Multi-Carrying Vessels (MCVs), responsible for transporting heavy oil & gas modules from trans-shipment hubs in the Black Sea and Finland, to Kazakhstan. All 20 vessels were constructed within a total of 20 months due to the strong cooperation between P&O Maritime Logistics, its consortium partners and Vard Shipyards, a pres communiqué stated. .
“By understanding our customer’s specific needs, and by applying a craftsman-like approach in the construction of these unique MCVs, we have been able to implement solutions that led to measurable improvements in efficiency,” commented Martin Helweg, CEO, P&O Maritime Logistics.
