Bolloré Completes Two Shipments of LPG Tank Modules
Danny Gill

Bolloré Logistics recently completed two shipments of LPG tank modules for Japanese firm Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. (KHI).

In addition to the transportation of all the materials for the construction of special LPG tanks, Bolloré Logistics Japan assisted with the transportation of large prefabricated modules to be attached to the top of the tanks. The prefabrication of the modules took place in Batam, Indonesia. The modules were transported by ro-ro (roll on / roll off) method on a barge from the manufacturer’s jetty at the Batam fabrication yard to the Module Offloading Facility at the construction site in Darwin, Australia.
