Among the most exciting works from technical and managerial points of view within frames of this project the following can be referred to.

  • February of 2013: the complete set of services related to dispatch of oversized cargo from Kholmsk to Arkhangelsk was provided. The cargo – a deck crane of 1 600 ton loading capacity, originally mounted aboard the ‘Fortuna’ pipe-laying barge that conducted hydro-engineering works in the shelf of Sakhalin, was removed and disassembled for the convenience of transportation. Dimensions of the biggest item was 4,3 x 4,5 x 5,8 meters. The scope of the forwarder’s work included warehouse handling, road transportation to the port and customs-clearance. All tasks were duly fulfilled and the crane was charged aboard the vessel, passing the South Sea Route via Suez Canal to Arkhangelsk, in strict accordance with the schedule. The fact that the cargo was cleared under the procedure of customs transit of goods originated in the Customs Union through the territory of states which are not members of the Customs Union – for the first time in practice of the Sakhalin customs since the new Customs Code entered into force in 2010, is a special subject of the company’s pride.
  • June of 2013: the road transportation of the crawler crane Kobelco from the port of Kaigan to the Onshore Production Facility at Kirinskoye gas-condensate field was performed. The total weight of transported items was equal to 183 tons, dimensions of the biggest one – 10 х 3,63 х 3,57 meters. In spite of the harsh road and climatic conditions of northern part of the island, the work was conducted without failures and delays.
