Almajdouie has claimed the world's largest evaporator load out, and the Middle East's heaviest load, for the Ras Al-Khair Plant in Saudi Arabia.
The 4,891 tonne evaporator is about the same size a football field, measuring 124 metres long, 34 m wide and 12 m high. Almajdouie used 172 axle lines of self propelled modular trailer (SPMT), incorporating 688 double width tyres and with a capacity of 6,680 tonnes, to move the unit from Ras al Khair Jetty to the Saline Water Conversion Corporation (SWCC) plant.
Contractor Doosan Heavy Industries won the US$ 1.76 billion plant project and commissioned Almajdouie to carry out land-based activities.
According to the project logistics company the move took months of planning and engineering preparation. This included the trailer configuration based on drawings, a site survey and route planning simulations. Almajdouie will move a total of eight evaporators to the site, the next one being in February 2012.
