Barrus Project Update


As part of the project for the transportation of reactors manufactured by PJSC “Izhorskiye Zavody” to PJSC “Tatneft” for the installation of hydrocracking unit, four reactors were transported from Kolpino, St. Petersburg to Nizhnekamsk, Republic of Tatarstan.

The main ODCs were:
·       First stage reactor pos. 4104R0101, 53.335 x 7.8 x 6.245 m / 1090.175 T
·       Second stage reactor pos. 4104R0102, 33.844 x 7.1 x 5.096 m / 427.38 T
·       Hydrodearomatisation reactor pos. 1503R0101 35.9 x 4.5 x 4.16 m / 236.14 T
·       Dewaxing reactor pos. 1503R0102 20.7 x 4.5 x 4.06 m / 108.64 T

BARRUS PROJECTS had a task of providing services for the transportation of oversized heavy reactors from the manufacturing plant in Kolpino across two railway crossings PCh-10 and PCh-29, including the preparation of the necessary infrastructure for the possibility of passing in curves, transportation by inland waterways using a barge towing arrangement, as well as the delivery of reactors on self-propelled hydraulic modular trailers in Nizhnekamsk. Also, our company had to prepare the berth of the manufacturer on the Neva River to receive the largest barge shipment in history of the factory, which we successfully completed with the help from divers.

The hydrodearomatization reactor and the dewaxing reactor were unloaded by crane to the berth of Transkama NJSC, and the reactors of the first and second stages were to be unloaded by the RO-RO method in the loading chamber of the Nizhnekamsk river port. Unfortunately, due to the low water level in the Kama river it was impossible to load the reactors of the first and second stages in the navigation period of 2021 because the low water level prevented from closing the watergate of the loading chamber. The reactors had to be left on the barge and put aside for the period between navigations at the berth of Transkama NJSC.
The hydrodearomatization reactor and the dewaxing reactor were successfully delivered to the installation site of PJSC “Tatneft”named after. V.D. Shashin and transferred to the consignee.
The reactors of the first and second stages will be unloaded from the barge and transported upon the opening of navigation period in 2022.
