MOL Group has released a short video detailing the complex transportation of giant equipment to its polyol complex in Hungary.

MOL’s polyol complex exceeded 70% overall completion, and the biggest equipment arrived despite pandemic-related logistics challenges.

The €1.2 billion polyol complex project is the MOL Group’s largest and most complex organic investment project.

It took years of logistics planning and required the coordinated use of special heavy haulage equipment to transport nearly 100 items, each weighing hundreds of tons, from across the ocean and from several locations in Europe to Tiszaújváros, Hungary, in time.

Some of the oversized cargoes were transported to Hungary from Belgium and Italy. Items that could be transported by road were transloaded to heavy haulage trailers at the Gönyu and Budapest ports, and it took the special convoys several days to get them to Tiszaújváros.
