When we were approached to provide a logistics solution for delivering 132 subsea buoyancy modules for the Cyprus Waterline Project, we were more than happy to assist. The scale and importance of the project was soon apparent.
Our remit was to find a cost-effective shipping method, whilst adhering to the client’s manufacturing schedule and specific cargo handling needs. The modules will play a key role in a unique and pioneering engineering project, building a subsea pipeline from Southern Turkey to Northern Cyprus, funded by the Turkish government.
The Turkish government has committed to finishing the pipeline, which will provide 75 million cubic metres of fresh water for drinking and irrigation, in a timely manner, so all contractors involved in the project had to adhere to strict deadlines.
Although these products are designed to withstand the worst subsea conditions, on land and in handling they can be susceptible to damage and it was imperative they arrived in perfect condition. We worked closely with our suppliers at every stage to ensure the cargo was handled carefully and delivered on time and on budget.
