Simon Project Logistics supporting APLNG Project in Queensland

  • Posted on Tuesday 30th, October 2012.

Although LNG export is a relatively young industry in Australia, the Australia Pacific LNG (APLNG) Project in Queensland has already become a driving force to the region’s economic development. Using Vawdrey equipment, Simon National Carriers is one transport expert capitalising on the new industry.

Simon Project Logistics, a division of Simon National Carriers has been chosen to support the construction of key infrastructure – including a 530km main gas transmission pipeline and some 150km of smaller transmission pipelines around Queensland. 

To meet the challenge, David has asked Victorian-based trailer specialist, Vawdrey, to design an extendable flat top that would not only be able to endure the harsh environment in southeast Queensland, but also weigh in at the lowest possible weight. Plus, the unit should be flexible enough to be used in a B-double combination once the project is complete.

So far, Simon National Carriers have taken delivery of 21 lightweight B-doubles built by Vawdrey – including some additional trailers since the $35 billion project got underway.
