Schuck Flying to Success

116 Tonnes of Schuck Ball Valves flown to Bintulu (Sarawak)

The first two Schuck Type "U" Top Entry Ball Valves 24" and 36" Class 900 with electric actuators, weighing in total 28 tonnes were loaded directly into a B747-400F freight aircraft utilizing the large side and nose-cargo doors on 15th July 2009. This was the first time a wide body cargo plane had flown to Bintulu and the landing went entirely to schedule. Head of Sales at Schuck, Timur Lenk explains.

The advanced part of the project required in total six valves to be manufactured and delivered within an extremely tight timeframe and with the help and co-operation of our staff and material suppliers we were successful in achieving this within the set time limits agreed with Petronas.

The completion of this order and the logistic scheduling of everything from the procurement of castings, (also air freighted in), production, planning the heavy transportation from our Steinheim works to Frankfurt Airport, had to be carefully planned and considered. Failure to keep to the agreed dates could have caused serious delays to the scheduled plant shutdown activities at site.
