MG3 Project – Transportation of Reactors from Port Klang to PETRONAS site in
For the MG3 project, Megalift Sdn Bhd transported 3 Reactors: Reactor R1901 weighing 479tons,
measuring (L) 32.07m x (W) 4.06m x (H) 4.38m in dimension; Reactor R1902 weighing 318tons,
measuring (L) 28.97m x (W) 3.75m x (H) 4.35m and Reactor R1903 weighing 188.3tons, measuring (L)
20.83m x (W) 3.70m x (H) 4.31m which is to be used in a PETRONAS site in Melaka.
Megalift’s job scope was to directly receive the cargoes (delivered from the fabrication yard in Japan)wah
from the MV Lena vessel onto a suitable barge measuring 230ft x 64ft x 14ft after which the barge then
sailed to Sungai Udang Port in Melaka, where Megalift operations team covered the scope of
transportation of the cargoes from the jetty to the jack down site, which was about 1km away.
The job was carried out utilizing 36 axles of multi-axle trailer configured to a 16 axle side-by-side, a 16 axle
& 20 axle. Also required during the operation was a 1,000hp tug to assist the barge to enter the Petronas
The whole intricate process took approximately two weeks to complete.
2 x 700MW Cycle Power Plant, Songkhla, Thailand
For the Songkhla Power Plant Project, Megalift was responsible for handling of the critical and heavy units
which consist of the Gas Turbine Generators, Steam Turbine Generator, Gas turbines and Steam Turbine (6
units in total). The scope of work was to receive the heavy units onto barge at port of discharge, barging from
port of discharge to private jetty, roll off the heavy units from barge, temporary storage at private jetty, delivery
to Songkhla Power Plant site (located some 35km away from jetty) and finally offloading and installation onto
foundation (for gas turbine generator units).
The generator units (3 units) weighing 318tons each were first delivered to Thailand via ocean vessel “M/V
Wiebke” and discharged at Songkhla Port using vessel’s own derrick crane directly onto barge positioned
alongside ocean vessel. After receiving and sea fastening, the barge was sailed off to a private jetty (MPP
Jetty) located about 5km away from port of discharge. At MPP jetty, roro operation was performed to
discharge the generator units. Megalift’s Goldhofer hydraulic multi-axle trailer with configuration of 12axle x
4files (24axles in total) were used for the roll off operation. Once rolled off, the generator units were jacked
down onto stools for temporary storage at MPP jetty pending final delivery instruction by client.
For the turbine units which consist of Gas turbines (2 units) weighing 310tons each and Steam Turbine (1 unit)
weighing 140tons, they were delivered to Thailand via ocean vessel “M/V Pangani” and discharged at
Songkhla Port using vessel’s own derrick crane directly onto barge positioned alongside ocean vessel. After
receiving and sea fastening, the barge was also sailed off to MPP jetty for discharging using roro method.
Megalift’s Goldhofer hydraulic multi-axle trailer with configuration of 12axle x 4files (24axles in total) were used
for the roll off operation of the Gas Turbines while the Steam turbine was rolled off using a 12axles x 2files.
For offloading of the gas turbines at MPP jetty for temporary storage, Megalift’s hydraulic gantry lifting systems
with a capacity of 800tons were used.
For delivery to site, the same hydraulic trailer configuration was used to load and deliver the cargoes.
Transportation was done during night time with army escorts and traveling a distance of about 35km.
Transportation took about 7-8hours with traveling speed of about 5km/h.
Once arrived at site, the cargo was offloaded using in-site overhead crane system to their respective
foundations except for the gas turbine generators.
The gas turbine generators were offloaded by means of jacking and skidding method. The hydraulic trailer was
parked in front of the generator foundation and the generator unit was jacked up on trailer to foundation height
of about 2m and finally skidded to foundation using hydraulic dragon skidding system. Then it was aligned and
jacked down onto its respective foundation.
The heavy units were delivered unit by unit continuously and took about 1 month to complete including
installation works. Aside from that, Megalift was also given the responsibility of assembly and skidding to
foundation of 2 units Condenser weighing 207tons each and also skidding to foundation of 1 unit Transformer
weighing 190tons at Songkhla Power Plant site.
Titan Butadine & Propylene Plant
Megalift was engaged by ABX logistics and Kontena Nasional to perform the heavylift for the above project
consisting of 8 pieces of heavy and over length cargoes
The longest cargoes was the Rectifier/Afterwasher column with length of 83m and weighed 143 MT. The
cargoes were divided into 2 separate shipments, 3 units on the 1 shipment and 5 units on the 2
shipment. All cargoes were fabricated in China and were sent by heavylift vessel to Pasir Gudang port.
Megalift’s scope of work was to receive the cargoes directly from vessel at Pasir Gudang Port and
transport them safely to Titan Butadine & Propylene Plant, located a only a few kilometers away from Pasir
For receiving and transportation of these heavy and over length cargoes, Megalift utilized 1 set of 6 bolster
8 multi-axle trailers. One set of trailers was used to receive the cargoes at port and later transported to site
1 unit at a time.
Transportation was carried out during the daytime for safety purpose and we engaged the services of
Pasir Gudang Police force to escort the cargo and control traffic during the transport operation. Before we
could transport the cargo, a lot of obstruction along the route had to taken out, such as traffic lights, lamp
post, signboards, trees, etc. For removal of all these obstructions, we engaged the local town council to
get their approval and also assistance to temporarily remove all obstruction along the transport route.
Transport of these overlength cargoes from Pasir Gudang port to Titan site took approximately 2 hours
with traveling speed not more than 5 km/h, about the same as walking pace.
Upon arrival at site, the cargoes were offloaded onto temporary supports using the trailers self-jacking
system and later to be erected by a 800 MT ringer crane. Overall the project was carried out successfully
without any mishaps or accident and to the satisfaction of the client.
EVENTS & HAPPENINGS
Quarterly makan-makan to forge closer relationship among the
Multi-Trans & Megalift family
To usher in the New Year, the staff of Multi-Trans Group of Companies were treated to a quarterly
party, held at the parking area behind the Multi-Trans office in Port Klang. The weather was fabulous,
the food was mouth-watering, the view wasn’t too bad but most importantly the occasion provided the
opportunity for the management to mingle with the staff. Realizing that the staff needed some
relaxation time apart from their daily work, the little party provided an avenue for the staff to unwind
and relax. Sumptuous food & drinks were served. While many were contented with the fried
noodles, rice, sambal prawns and other varieties, some can be spotted biting happily on their sticks of
satay and holding onto cans of beer, while chatting away.
Mr. Tan Ah Seng, the MD can be seen mingling with his staff and can be heard asking if the food was
good and more such parties should be held more often. Many can be heard shyly answering, “Sedap,
sedap!”. The bolder & more sporting ones even suggested karaoke for future sessions. That definitely
got the crowd excited, suggesting for a karaoke set, a stage & suitable lightings to set the mood.
So, we’ll definitely be looking forward to the next “makan-makan” session, this time to be
accompanied by the crooning of Cliff Richard & Tina Turner wannabes!
ISO9001:2000 Audit For Multi-Trans > > > > 10 January 2007

WOU STRIKE!! Bowling session with Tepat Teknik>>>> 24 May 2007

after a hard day’s work, but it also provided ample opportunity for closer ties between Megalift and the
client to be strengthened!
