Comarco is targeting Myanmar by positioning marine assets, cranes and heavy lift trailers into the country. Since the early 90's Comarco have transported a combined total of over 100,000 tonnes of cargo.
COMARCO booth presence at the Power Logistics conference in Singapore 18-19 November 2014.
The conference had a number of exhibitions and speakers covering a variety of topics in the following industries: Oil and gas, energy, mining, heavy engineering and shipping.
Comarco, with a proven track record in marine logistics, cargo transport and transhipment and beach landings of heavy cargo, is targeting Myanmar by positioning marine assets, cranes and heavy lift trailers into the country. Myanmar is undeveloped on many fronts by comparison to its neighbours, China & Thailand and Comarco is in a position to assist in Myanmar's development programme. Comarco sees both its experience and expertise in the country to be potentially of great benefit in delivering cargos of all sizes and weights into the remotest of locations.
Comarco is no stranger to Myanmar. Since the early 1990's, we have transported a combined total of over 100,000 tonnes of both normal and heavy loads by barge throughout the country, including voyages as far as 776 miles upriver.
Returning in full force in 2014, Comarco has positioned its first dedicated set for Myanmar, having recently purchased a tug & barge spread that has been complimented with a 100MT Sumitomo crawler crane, together with a set of Goldhofer heavy lift axles, giving lifting capabilities and versatility in both conventional and remote locations.
The Shwe Lin Yone tug, is a 2014 built 1,300HP twin engine vessel with a maximum draft only 3.2m, making her suitable to navigate deep up the rivers and waterways into Myanmar.
The Comarco 2101 barge is a new build 210ft X 70ft (64 X 21m) ballastable flat top barge with a deck loading capacity of 15t/m2, fitted with container shoes and equipped with the Sumitomo crawler crane on deck.
Comarco has been contracted by JGH Marine of Denmark to assemble and install three mooring buoys in Kilindini Harbour, Mombasa. The buoys were fabricated by JGH Marine to upgrade vessel mooring capacity for the Kenya Port Authority.
Comarco received and consolidated all BGP cargo in the Supply Base, processed all export documentation, loaded, lashed and secured all equipment onto the flattop transport barge Comarco 233 and departed Mombasa, ahead of schedule, under the tow of tug Comarco Swift.
Comarco has been contracted by renowned salvage company Resolve Marine to provide resources, including tug Comarco Buzzard, heavy duty ballast barge Comarco 2801, 100t mobile crane, submersible pumps, generators, lighting sets and other salvage equipment.
A train carrying mixed cargo de-railed whilst heading out of the Port of Mombasa to the Nairobi terminus, on the only bridge heading off the Mombasa Island onto the Mainland Kenya. Comarco did a tandem lift on all the carriages using the cranes simultaneously to spread the weight over the very narrow bridge section.
The project has been sanctioned by the Office of the Prime Minister in order to provide safe and reliable docking facilities for the island's fishing and passenger boats.
Comarco completed the crane construction contract for Liebherr Container Cranes at the Comarco Supply Base.
Comarco were awarded the contract by Tanzania Ports Authority for the rehabilitation, fendering and installation of cathodic protection to Quay No 2 at Tanga under a ‘Design and Build’ agreement.
Comarco has recently completed a contract for The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations for the deployment of 25 Fish Aggregating Devices along the coastline of Somalia.
Comarco has signed a contract to deliver rock and and aggregate between the Indian Ocean islands of Madagascar and Reunion as part of the offshore road construction project in Reunion, La Nouvelle Route Du Littoral.
