Project Planning and Execution
Projects begin long before execution. KOG Russia supports customers in providing detailed information and advice about the project challenges and potential loopholes as well as methods of their elimination.
Heavy-lift transportation requires special transport equipment or even changes to existing infrastructure. KOG Transport Engineering Teams in Germany and Japan render support in developing solutions for the most challenging moves.
Site and Route Surveys
KOG Russia has an experienced team of conducting detailed route and site surveys along transport routes, making sure to account for limitations imposed by infrastructure, climate, season or even political peculiarities. If necessary, we arrange for carrying out an upgrade work to ensure local road and rail links can carry heavy-lift and oversized loads safely. For transports through the Russian navigation system, hydrographic surveys of shallow waters are made in order to also identify safe heavens in case of bad weather conditions en route.
Air and Sea Charters
Using the worldwide network, KOG Russia specializes in chartering air and sea vessels, barges, tugs and supply boats to move out-of-gauge and heavy-lift loads safely to destination.
As part of provision of turn-key services.
