2013-05-28 - Projects FPS helps build a brewery in Sri Lanka

Projects FPS, a recently-established project forwarding and third-party logistics arm of Famous Pacific Shipping Lanka, has cleared and delivered a 9,000 cubic metre shipment of outsize-brewery equipment from Colombo Port to the site of a new Millers Ltd brewery at Meegoda, 35 kilometres inland from Colombo.

The project, which included 37 stainless steel tanks, the largest of which measured 15m in length and 5m in diameter, arrived in Colombo aboard a chartered vessel from Wallart, Denmark.
Project FPS transported the tanks inland over ten nights, using two specially-constructed, 15m long low-loader trailers with rear steering to help negotiate tight turns on the route.

The route to the new brewery site also involved passing under many low-hanging telecoms and power cables. In order to achieve this, the assistance of staff from Ceylon Electricity Board and Sri Lanka Telecom was required. All movements were conducted with full police escorts.

Project FPS Manager Mohan Lazarus was on location throughout the entire operation.  Lazarus commented, “this was a massive undertaking. Although the route was short, it included many challenging obstacles. But everything went very well, and the customer was very pleased with the end result. We would like to thank the Police and utilities staff for their invaluable help throughout.”
