Cargo firm Jiangsu Sunshine International Logistics transported petrochemical equipment to the Huizhou Refinery Integration project in China.
The components weighed 100,000 tonnes and were delivered to oil company CNOOC as part of the second phase of construction work at the site in central Guangdong province. The delivery formed one of a number of recent breakbulk shipments Jiangsu has completed for oil projects in China.
Breakbulk shipments included chemical towers, tanks, and an air separation plant with 150 of the deliveries involving units over 100 tonnes. The longest component transported by Jiangsu measured 98 meters and 5.1 meters in diameter while the largest was 500 cubic meters in volume.
A cargo of 80,000 cubic meters of components was delivered to China National Petroleum Corp. for the Venezuela oil pipeline project while a further 80,000 cubic meters was delivered to CNOOC for its Hainan Fine Chemical Plant project.
The breakbulk deliveries were coordinated from Jiangsu’s headquarters in Shenzhen and utilized the firm’s fleet of more than 20 deck barges. Alongside oil shipments, the firm also specializes in heavy wind power equipment transport and recently invested in a 320-acre logistics hub in Jiangsu. The firm is a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium, a global network connecting breakbulk firms around the world.
