Cargo B747 Fire Training Unit
From Jebel Ali, UAE
To Ras Laffan, Qatar
Details NMT Projects Dubai were contracted by Fabtec to carry out a turnkey job for one B747 fire training unit, fabricated at the Fabtech yard for delivery in Qatar. The cargo was collected from Fabtech Yard to Jebel Ali port, thereafter from Jebel Ali port to Ras-Laffan port and then to Ras-Laffan Emergency Services College Qatar for consignee Kidde Fire Trainers USA.

Cargo Description: 11 packages of 280 CBM / 20 Tonnes of foundation material transported from fabricators yard in Jebel Ali to Ras-Laffan Emergency Services College Qatar by road and handling all border clearances including custom clearance at Doha on behalf of client. 9 packages of 3034.68 CBM / 138 Tonnes were transported from the fabricators yard in Jebel Ali to Ras-Laffan Emergency Services College Qatar by sea on a semi-submersible barge. Following units were interesting to handle as we required Kharamaa (Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation) special permission to pass through 132KV high voltage lines due to height of the cargo.

The largest pieces where:
A) 17.4m long, 6.7m wide, 8.2m high and 45 Tonnes in weight
B) 15.4m long, 6.7m wide, 8.2m high and 48 Tonnes in weight
C) 15.0m long, 6.7m wide, 6.9m high and 23 Tonnes in weight

The delivery site belongs to Qatar Petroleum which is very specific on the safety standards and equipments which used in transportation and shipping. For this we had to fly to Qatar along with a Method Statement, detailing the complete plan along with equipment certificates and certificates of people who where scheduled to be working on the project. After approval, we moved the above 9 units on a Cometto conventional modular trailer from the fabrication yard to the port where we loaded the cargo on the semi-submersible barge by a RoRo operation. On arrival on site, we used 250 Tonnes crane to complete the erection of 9 units into the Mock-up Structure for the B747 fire training aircraft, which took 2 and half days for erection. NMT Projects Dubai completed the job in full satisfaction of the fabricator and receiver at Ras Lafan Emergency Services College.
