EGL keeps busy in Egypt

first_imgThe boilers, which measured 6 m in height, were transported from Alexandria to Ain Sokhna, Egypt.Due to the height of the boilers, EGL had to transport the cargoes on an alternative route to avoid low bridges and obstacles. The boilers were transported 320 km through narrow roads and residential areas to reach the installation site in Ain Sokhna.In a separate project, EGL has transported two gearboxes and two transformers from the Port of Adabiya to a cement factory in Beni Suef, Egypt.After arriving on board Jumbo Fairlane, one of the two heavy lift ships in Jumbo’s H-class fleet, the cargoes were transported 280 km, utilising ten axle lines of Goldhofer’s modular trailers. Fitted with two 400-tonne capacity cranes, Jumbo Fairlane has a combined lifting capacity of 800 tonnes.Due to the size of the units, one of which measured 3.4 m x 6.9 m x 6.9 m and weighed 78 tons (70.8 tonnes), EGL says it had to manoeuvre the cargoes with absolute precision along the route, which involved narrow roads and obstacles.  www.eglegypt.comwww.kadmar.comwww.jumbomaritime.nl www.goldhofer.delast_img read more

Shanghai Metro Line 2 to link the airports

first_imgWORK started on July 25 on the extension of Shanghai Metro’s Line 2 from Long Yang Road to Pudong International Airport.Long Yang Road is at present the penultimate station on Line 2 at its eastern end, where an interchange already exists with the maglev service to the airport. The extension will take the metro into the airport itself by May 2010 via a 30·8 km route that will serve 12 stations, nine of which will be built underground. The developers have revised original plans to elevate much of the line after environmental concerns were raised. An underground alignment will reduce noise pollution for local residents.Line 2 is also to be extended westwards to the mainly-domestic airport at Hongqiao, thus connecting both facilities. The line would then cover 60 km with a projected end-to-end journey time of 1 h 20 min.last_img read more

Korkoya, Weah is leading in 11 out of 15 voting regions in the results announced on Thursday.Weah’s close opponent and Vice President, Joseph Boakai led in just one county- although he was the second candidate in most of the regions.Two top candidates from the field of 20 candidates will head for a run-off in November – in the event that none garners an outright win.Liberia’s polls are seen by many, as a transition from its bloody past.Voters are choosing a successor to Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who led Liberia as it recovered from civil war and the Ebola outbreak that killed nearly 5,000 people and sparked fear around the world.last_img read more
