Geodis Wilson Italia, a global logistics provider and freight management companies, will deliver four absorber reactors to the Abu Dhabi Gas Development Company Ltd Shah Project site, south of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.

The site will be among the largest natural gas extraction and proecessing plants in the world. The reactors, weighing 1,400 tons and measuring 60 meters according to Geodis Wilson, will travel independently from Ortona, Abruzzo, Monfalcone and Marghera. Each reactor was constructed in Italy, and will be supplemented by components from South Korea, China and Italy, from which many of the parts to build the Shah Gas plant came from. 

In transporting approximately 300,000 cubic meters of materials, the project is expected to last 18 months.

Geodis Industrial Project Director of Geodis Wilson Italia Biagio Oro said the success of the project "depends on the effectiveness of upstream high-engineering activities." Oro credits meticulous planning, charting best-suited vessels, stipulating exact dimensions with ship owners, feasibility studies, supervision of loading and unloading, and transport logistics services as means to an effective and smooth delivery process.

The reactors will be unloaded at Mussafah port in the UAE, then transported on self-propelled modular trailers for approximately a month to the Shah Gas Plant.
