Jonmoore's Role in TEN Project

Jonmoore's Role in TEN Project

Jonmoore International Limited was the Global Freight Forwarding, Heavy Lift and Project Logistics Partner contracted by Modec Offshore Production Systems, Singapore, for the on-shore fabrication of Nine (9) Suction Piles for the Tweneboa, Enyera and Ntomme (TEN) project. 
Jonmoore was also the Logistics Service Provider for Group Five Construction; the Fabrication Company that handled the in-country fabrication of the Suction Piles.
Jonmoore’s scope of work under this contract from February 2014 – July 2015 included the following:

1. International Freight Forwarding – With our rich experience in Expert Project Handling and together with our Freight Forwarding partners, we arranged the shipping and air freighting of all the component parts of suctions piles from the manufacturers factory in China to the Tema Port and the Kotoka International Airport respectively. These component parts comprised of Can Halves, Pad Eye Cans, Lifting Trunnions, Steel Plates etc.
Jonmoore also arranged the shipping and airfreighting of all the welding machinery and welding consumables that were used by Group Five. These were shipped as component parts in containers and as loose cargo and loaded from South Africa, the Czech Republic, Belgium, Dubai, Singapore, Sweden and China to the Tema port and also the Kotoka International Airport. 
The export aspect included arranging the appropriate means of transport and the appropriate loading equipment, positioning at suppliers premises for loading as well as export clearance.
All these were professionally coordinated and cargo was picked up promptly as per the Client and Manufacturer’s schedule and also based on available vessel and flight schedules. 

2. Customs Clearance – Using our in-house and dedicated clearing team, Jonmoore International Limited ensured the right documentation was prepared for each shipment to ensure that there were no delays and that cargo was cleared promptly. Upon Cargo arrival at the ports, Jonmoore facilitated the Customs and Port Clearance of these cargoes.

3. Transport – With our versatile fleet of light and heavy duty vehicles we transported these consignments both conventional and over-dimensional from the ports to the Sekondi Naval Base. Since all trucks are owned and operated by us, we ensured that the right means of transport for the cargo being customs cleared was always available hence all cargo was promptly loaded from the port. Cargoes were properly lashed and secured unto the trucks using certified lashing equipment. Pre-departure briefing was always done prior to trucks being dispatched. On occasions when the cargoes were over-dimensional, professional and trained escort officers were put on the convoy to ensure extra safety on the road, help with the traffic situation and also to ensure cargo is received by the Client in good condition.
4. Equipment Hire – From our owned fleet, we offered  various lifting equipment to the Client and these included a 400T Kobelco Crawler Crane, a 100T Terex Demag Crane, a 50T Grove Crane, a 4.5T Manitou Telehandler, a 7T Hyster Forklift and a Cherry Picker. These equipment came each with it’s own Certified Operator and riggers and were dedicated to the project i.e. remained on site till the end of the project. These made it easy, as there was always equipment on site to assist with the offloading of the trucks when they arrived on site and also assisted with the fabrication of the suctions.

Prior to the load out phase of the project, a Self Propelled Modular Trailer of a capacity of 480 metric tons was imported into the country to assist with the movement of completed suctions piles from one location of the site to the other.
A 600T Terex Demag Crawler Crane was also imported in-country and together with the already existing 400T Kobelco crane, all the suction piles were up-ended and finally loaded out onto a barge.

Safety was of paramount interest to the various stakeholders and the project was completed incident-free. 
Shipping and tracking updates were sent on a daily basis to the Client to enable proper project planning, management and execution. 
Since this was an on-site project, we had an office on site at the Sekondi Naval Base which employed a Project Manager, a Supply Chain Manager, a Health and Safety officer, an Administrative Assistant who together coordinated and managed all the various on-site aspect of the project. 
There was also the team that was based in our Head office in Tema that liaised with the various partners and coordinated and steered the project to a successful end.
