This project included the transportation of a massive HDT reactor weighing 1,203 metric tons and measuring 38.53m x 8.90m x 6.16m. The river’s strong tide and the height of the equipment made it difficult to pass below the bridge, which was broken and could not be lifted. When the team encountered a high unloading dock in relation to the barge, Armamex created a metal ramp at the Tampico shipyard to facilitate the unloading process.
Cantarell Nitrogen Plant
The project involved moving equipment for the Cantarell Nitrogen Plant in Atasta, Campeche. The project included loading operations using the ship’s cranes as well as navigation from Coatzacoalcos to Nuevo Campechito with arrival at a dock specially built for this project. The team encountered two major problems, a five-foot draft at the entrance of the river and electric cables crossing the river with a reduced aerial draft.
PEMEX Dehydration & Desalting System
Maritime transportation of diverse units of a Crude Oil Dehydration & Desalting System for the PEMEX E&P platform Akal-J1 in Campeche Bay.
The project include the supply of suitable tug and deck barges, designing of the stowage plan and marine secures, and in some phases including the loadout of the cargo. The discharge was done by PEMEX, alongside DP crane vessels next to the platform.
The project involved the transportation of four carbon coke drums each weighting 278 tons, and a Vacuum Tower 200MT, from Altamira to Madero.
The availability of the Armamex’s specialized equipment was crucial in the success of the project. The cargo was so large it could only be transported by road for just a few kilometers.
To complete the project, the MV ‘POPOCATEPETL II’ was used, assisted by the Armamex’s local tug fleet.
Single Buoy Mooring
As a part of a contract with PEMEX Refining, the team need to transport a Single Buoy Mooring from Salina Cruz, Oax. (Pacific Side) to Tuxpam, Ver. (Gulf of Mexico) through the Panama Canal for repairs. Because of the lack of cranes at the loading port, a semi-submergible barge was furnished at Armamex’ Shipyard for loading and unloading operations.
