Heavy transport company Royal Cargo Combined Logistics (RCCLI) based in the Philippines, has completed the transport of 16 pieces of modular pontoons for an oil rig in the Philippines.

The smallest piece of cargo weighed 260 tonnes and the largest weighed 337 tonnes. Measurements of the pontoons were from 8.5 x 16 x 9.5 metres to 11.5 x 16 x 9.5 m. In total, the weight of the transport was 4,500 tonnes, a company spokesperson said.

RCCLI transported the cargo to Keppel Port in Batangas, Philippines, where the pontoons will be used as the base of the oil rig in the Keppel Batangas Shipyard. The oil rig is due to be shipped to Singapore.

Lawrence Esteban, RCCLI senior technical engineer, said, “The recent projects and heavy lift move of Royal Cargo in Keppel Port Shipyard is not your ordinary heavy lift transportation, it is also over dimensional because of its height and width.”

RCCLI is a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) network for the Philippines.
