AAL & GEODIS Join Forces to Make a Giant Delivery to Australia

AAL & GEODIS Join Forces to Make a Giant Delivery to Australia
Danny Gill

AAL Dampier recently delivered a humongous Electrostatic Precipitator (ESP) module to one of the world’s largest primary lead smelting facilities, Port Pirie, located in Southern Australia.

The module was shipped from Jiangsu, China to its final destination at Port Pirie. The module itself is 41m long, 21m high, weighed 530mt, and is the largest component to be shipped for Pirie’s ongoing Redevelopment Project which will convert the aged smelter into a modern multi-metals processing and recovery facility. AAL’s safe ocean transport of this module was part of a wider end-to-end logistics operation managed by the Industrial Projects division of international supply chain operator, GEODIS.

The ESP unit is one part of an Off Gas System that will draw Sulphur Dioxide rich gas and fumes generated from the Top Submerged Furnace (TSL) and ‘electrostatically’ charge them, removing solid particles and enabling ‘clean gas’ to continue into the Acid Plant process. The system should have a positive impact on the environmental performance of Pirie’s operations.

Marc Willim, General Manager of AAL’s Tramp & Projects Division, explained, “Our engineers spent weeks poring over lift, stowage, and discharge plans to ensure safe and timely delivery. The result is a milestone for all parties involved. For AAL it reinforces our reputation as a trusted heavy lift specialist with the right tonnage and expertise to meet any multipurpose shipping demands. For GEODIS it marks another successful stage in its seamless execution of this project, and Nyrstar takes delivery of a component that will significantly improve the environmental performance of its site as part of the delivery of the Redevelopment Project.”

Maureen Brown, General Manager AU/NZ, Industrial Projects, GEODIS added, ‘The success of the project to date is due to the dedicated team based in Brisbane, Adelaide and Shanghai, and has brought a number of benefits to Nyrstar.”
