                     WWPC - recognized name in projects
                     Welcome to this 2nd WWPC Newsletter for the Year 2010 where we are
                     pleased to highlight the achievements of our Members.

                     In many of the articles we can read about the combined WWPC Power,
                     where cooperation of several WWPC Members during one transport quaran-
                     teed the successful outcome in sometimes most difficult circumstances.

                     Among many articles about our member´s achievements we like to present
                     an interview (page 12-13) I recently conducted for the International Trans-
                     port Journal, where the history and presence of the network are being made a
                     subject of interesting reading. This article has been named by the Editor of ITJ
                     ‘Simply the Best’.
    Wolfgang Karau
                     That quote confirms the Members of the WWPC, consisting of leading Poject
    Director
                     Forwarding Professionals, are able to assist with any project. An equal strong
                     brand and excellent reputation in the project cargo market completes the
                     stand of the Network in international competition, expressed so well by the
                     Editor of ITJ. We certainly made our mark and underlined our position!

                     Our global marketing continues and recently received a boost by the launch of
                     Heavy Cargo News (www.heavycargonews.com), an online Newswire and the
                     Digital Magazine, which is headlined ‘We Have The Power’. The ever growing
                     amount of visitors to the website confirms the interest of the market in our
                     Members activities.

                     A definate highlight for the Members will be our upcoming annual conference
                     27th-29th January 2011 in Mumbai, India, to which we also welcome distin-
                     guished Sponsors and selected Media Representatives.

Almajdouie triumph contract for Sabiya Power Plant project
Almajdouie Al Kazmi Heavylift Company has secured the onshore freight forwarding contract for Kuwait-based Sabiya
power plant project. The company, which is a joint venture between Almajdouie Group (Dammam, Saudi Arabia) and Al
Kazmi (Kuwait), will handle about 300,000 F/T of cargo imported from various part of world and will be responsible for the
entire project management and customs clearance, inland transportation of all material from various seaports and airports
including local movement of heavy turbines/transformers / generators by barge operations from Sabiya seaport to the jetty.

    Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), which
holds an engineering procurement and construction
(EPC) contract for the Sabiya project, earlier invited
Almajdouie PSC Heavylift Company Ltd to bid for an
exclusive handling of the onshore freight forwarding
work, based on its remarkable services for mega power
plant Al Dour in Bahrain, which HHI is currently
working on.
    Almajdouie and HHI have maintained long busi-
ness relationship. Previously both the companies have

International Transport Journal ITJ Interview about WWPC

Simply the best
The Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC), a globally active forwarding alliance that focuses on heavylift and project
cargo, is considered to be one of the most prominent heavylift networks today. The ITJ editor Robert Altermatt talked to
WWPC director Wolfgang Karau.

own exclusive area. The whole system
is governed by a franchise agreement.
This method also makes us stand out
from other heavylift networks, as the
WWPC franchise agreement gives our
members the right and the chance to
use our name and logo for marketing
purposes. Moreover, it enables them
to say to clients that they have offices
at their disposal throughout the whole
world!

To what extent did WWPC members
feel the economic recession?
Before the recession we had almost
caught up with the backlog of projects.
The economic downturn had a negative
effect on our members over the past
eighteen months. However, there was
practically no decline worth mention-
ing in the Asian region. The situation
was different in both North and South
America, as well as in Africa. Project
contracts were, and still are being
signed in these regions, but banks are
no longer guaranteeing the financing
of the tasks. Entire projects have had
to be shelved. It occasionally happened
in certain sectors that goods had been
prepared and were ready and waiting
for shipping in a port, then the project
was cancelled for the reason I men-
tioned above. In certain cases these
goods are still in a port, waiting to be
used elsewhere...

Albacor Shipping (USA), Inc., Mahwah, NJ, handled the
transport of two used Tunnel Boring Main Drives, each
with 95 tons, from Manhattan, NY to Kehl, Germany.
    The two units were shipped from New York to Ant-

Maxlines handles heavy boilers and sends Buddha
Maitreya to the sea
Maxlines Forwarder Co. Ltd from
Taiwan recently handled two noticeable
projects, of which the first was about
getting a CFB boiler set from Tianjin
port, China to Taichung port, Taiwan.
     The scope of work covered the
safe transportation of 64 packages,
258,933kgs, 681.07cbm of sensitive
boiler equipment.
     Another remarkable project was
the safe movement of a 10 ton weight
and 4,50 meter height statue of the
sitting Buddha Maitreya from the Port
of Keelung in Taiwan to Belawan Port
in Indonesia. The Buddha statue was
packed into seaworthy wooden crates
and loaded onto a 40’ flatrack for the
ocean voyage.

Holleman moves large industrial
tanks through Bulgarian winter
During harsh winter conditions earlier this year Holleman Bulgaria
O.O.D., operated a total of six transportations for a project to move 6
pcs large tanks for a chemical plant from Haskovo to Port Burgas West
within Bulgaria.
    The single pieces with dimensions of 34.00 / 5.60 / 4.14 m and
weight 84 ton each was a challenge for Holleman’s experts to be
moved safely and on schedule. Each single transport involved passing
a level, turning off the electricity locally and being guided by police
escorts.

discharge and shifting onto special road trailers and transported to
the jobsite.

Unique move of heavy port transporters
from Iran to Kazakhstan by road
During March , April 2010 Sepherun Tarabar Int’l Transport, Iran, successfully
moved two OOG port Transporters Length of 18m , Width of 6.1m , Height of
2.3m each weighing 60MT from Bandar Abbas port South of Iran to Aktau /
Kazakhstan through 3200Km all by road.
    This was a unique movement as due to high over width of cargo to control the
units on Trailer’s chassis, they had to weld extra beams to each sides of trailers.
This transport completed in 40Days all through muddy roads & very poor road
condition by helping of bulldozers at some stages to tow the trailers passing Iran,
Turkmenistan & Kazakhstan territories.
At the end after hard work & close supervision the cargo was delivered to Aktau
port authorities safe & sound in perfect condition.
