Lionell, you do have a point there. In fact when I had checked with the CA (Clearing Agent) I did ask him about missing "LADDER" above the trucks but he insisted that they are FT & bound for CWG. In fact one can see multiple hydrants on right side of trucks. So I accepted his statement.
They were being used by Halliburton in Oman, In India we have no idea about their fate.
Being surveyor I did enjoy your link THOROUGHLY.

Guys,

Thats a Halliburton Pump truck with an HT400 pump in the back. Primarily used for cementing oilwell casing or in combination with multiple trucks for fracturing and/or acidizing oil/gas bearing formations.

They are monsters in their own right and are capable of pumping upto 20,000 psi fluid into oil/gas wells.

Such equipment are frequently imported/exported from India as and when required.

They are very versatile pumps used for multiple applications, but I seriously doubt that they are being used as fire trucks, but what the hey, anythings possible.

Even i had doubt when ariesonu described them as fire engines, as i have seen them as well as fellow bhpians posted pics such Kenworths spotted in Mumbai and Ahmedabad.Where they are used by ONGC and RELIANCE.

The Scania's were imported by ALLCARGO . They had to be abandoned as a couple were LHD's and other's were older than 10 years .

About the haliburton's so called fire trucks . Importers quite often will try and mislead the customs . Maybe they have classified these oil exploration trucks as fire trucks so as to save some money and get this equipment cleared without any major hassle's

ariesonu@ the major port is Mumbai indira docks .





[quote=ariesonu;1827521]These three Scania haulers & VW are rotting in a major port. Seems like some engine parts have been removed from one of the Scania truck.
Possible on their way to *rust in pieces.. thread*. Dont know the history of these vehicles.

Now what happens to these trucks and the VW? Do they just rust out there on the docks or can be auctioned/ sold?

@SirAlec: I believe you are talking about this thread http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/commer...nia-truck.html

@MadMonkey: I refrained from naming ports due to its category as 'PROTECTED AREA". I'm a surveyor so I go into ports everyday.

@wanderernomad: The port is taking serious note of importers & CA who do not clear items from port premises & will now auction products that are not cleared within one years time. This VW will go for auction in Oct 2010. Keep an eye on newspapers.

Just to add the fact that most the equipment of Halliburton are painted red. Its their so called corporate colour

Default Wonder(ful)ing Machinery

While going for survey of a ship, I found these wonderful machines in a major seaport. Since I could not make out purpose of first machine, I'll let the Pics do talking.
Await your inputs.

I wonder what is this machine about

I had to be discreet in taking these pics because a naval ship was docked at nearby berth & would come into camera view from certain angles. Not taking chances I took pics where I could best avoid capturing naval ship in photos.

Raab Rakha.

The red earthmover looks like a heavy capacity payloader but to be used at a construction site and not at a mine which explains the lack of tread on the tires. Also, going by the low rise of the bucket, the intended use could be to double up as a payloader and a dozer.

The strange looking small machine looks like a track analyser with the rear wheel having sensory equipment fitted onto it. Not very sure about this one though.

I've seen the red machine in action in Chennai. I guess it's got something to do with clearing the underground sewage lines. Because I've seen the machine fitted with a long pipe kind of contraption at the rear (where there's something that appears to be a small hatch with some hydraulics on top), pausing over manholes and raising itself on the hydraulic jack on the rear wheels. The one that I saw was yellow in colour and had a cabin too. It had beacon lights also. The emblem too looks like the same. Couldn't take pictures as I was in a moving bus at night.

I have noted recent upswing in import of specialised machines. Especially from Atlas Copco whose machines are quite famous with SAIL of India.
The yellow has telescopic bucket & I presume it may be used for some overhead Metro work. The red one is certaily NOT for Mumbai. The ODD one I have learnt is for some kind of road work (Silversteed, you were right) & has been brought for tarmac work on Peddar road stretch. It'll be used mainly in South Mumbai & is very noisy.

@ Narayan: Some DC design

Hi Ariessonu,
A friend of mine, while driving to office from home at Bombay came across a large contingent of UN flatbed trucks carrying, apart from a lot of other stuff, 10 white Scorpios specially made and ordered for the UN peacekeeping forces. They were all MHawk 4X4s with extra meshes on the windscreen, thicker looking doors etc.

Unfortunately, as he did not have a camera, he was not able to click them. Is it possible for you to try and trace them and post a few pics. Since they are peacekeeping vehicles anyway being carried in open sight, I do not think it should be a security concern

If you could try a locate the Scorps, they would make interesting pictures
