Panalpina Energy and Project Solutions have teamed up to execute another major transportation operation. This latest project consisted of two port-to-door shipments of a hydraulic press and an industrial mill from the Port of Genoa in Italy to one of the main logistics hubs in Brazil, Paranaguá and final installation on site of both machines in Tijucas, Santa Catarina.

The client is one of Brazil’s leading makers of ceramic products with an output of over 30 million tiles each year.

The Hydraulic Press is a state-of-the-art design by industry leader Sacmi based in Italy. The 176 ton Imola PH 7500 was disassembled in two sections each packed separately with the main unit weighing 120 tons and the press motion unit 56 tons. In ceramics, the presses are used to form the ceramic powder.

The second unit was a Sacmi MTD Drum weighing 32 tons this is used in the wet grinding, glaze processes. Both units when in operation are used for the production of porcelain stoneware.

Head of energy and Product Solutions in Brazil for Panalpina Energy. Anderson Antonio says, “Although the parts had a long way to go, the main challenge was to navigate the last few corners inside the warehouse at project site. The narrow doors, warehouse columns, internal structures, and machines surrounding the points required a very detailed analysis and complex execution. The handling required several maneuvers to have both press and mill positioned for final lifting,” further adding, “One of the reasons why Panalpina Energy was chosen for this move was our ability to provide this kind of last-mile service for over sized cargo, which is essential for the high-output globalized economy we live in,”

Now both machines are successfully installed at the client’s facility they play an integral part in the day to day production. Finished products are shipped out to a multitude of countries across five continents.
