It is no news that the NNPC for the first time adopted the railway option to ferry 96 pipelines meant for the AKK pipeline project from Warri to Itakpe.

The pipeline which if they were to be carried by trucks and trailers will take almost 2 days and 32 trucks to do so was done in a day and cheaper way.

According to reports, at about 11.15 am, history was made when weeks and months of planning culminated in the haulage of 96 {40inch} gas project line pipes by rail. This is the equivalent of 32 trailers worth of load. Through this landmark event, the pipes will arrive at Itakpe in a record time of 8 hours travelling at a speed of 50km per hour.

This is the first time a haul of this magnitude is taking place on a standard gauge rail line in Nigeria.

This rail movement takes out 32 heavily loaded trailers off our roads thereby extending the lifespan of the roads. It also saves tens of man-hours, it is safer and almost eliminates accidents involving vehicular and human traffic.

Already the pipes arrived Itakpe same day by about 10.48 pm. Nine wagons bearing 54 pipelines have been offloaded, while the remaining 7 wagons will follow suit. The company handling the project is Oilserv.

AutoReportNG got some exclusive photos of how the pipelines were loaded to the rail and the processes it takes. See below
