What were our contribution

Our client based in Gujarat, is a gear and material handling giant of India, one of the biggest names in the field of Engineering & Projects. Our Client won the project of supplying 2 x 100 tons Gear Box (Front Gear Box of 100 tons and Rear Gear Box 100 tons) for then under construction INS Vikrant at Kochi Shipyard in Kochi, Kerala, India.

Gear Box was to be imported from Germany. Challenge was to deliver 100 ton, 1 package gear box safely to jetty of Kochi Shipyard within 24 HRS of vessel arrival at Kochi Port. Conventional mode of operation, to discharge 100 ton package on a multi axel trailer and then transporting it by surface was very expensive and time consuming affair due to local norms to transport heavy lift package through Kochi City.

Team CCS offered the solution to deliver this heavy lift package via a dedicated Barge to Kochi Shipyard at 50% lesser cost. Upon arrival of the vessel at Kochi Port, the shipment was custom cleared & then transferred to a barge which was strategically placed alongside the vessel. 100 ton single package plus its accessories were delivered smoothly at Kochi Shipyard jetty within 24 HRS of vessel arrival.

The entire operation was personally handled by Team CCS, winning appreciation from the client and management of Kochi Shipyard both respectively. First Gear Box was delivered in Apr 2012 and Second Gear Box was delivered in Feb 2013 by Team CCS. Team CCS is proud to contribute in a very small way to the manufacturing of INS Vikrant.
