In 2015, Bertling completed the successful transport of a T-5000 divided wall tower to Malaysia’s largest divided wall tower to BASF PETRONAS Chemicals Aroma Chemicals Complex site in Kuantan, Malaysia. At just under 69 meters long and weighing 312 tons, it is the largest tower of its kind in Malaysia and one of the largest ever made in China or installed by BASF. The 2,500 nautical mile transport from Shanghai required transport by land, sea and river, import of specialized equipment, months of planning and a large project team.
