HHL Delivers Terex Cranes
German transport specialist Hansa Heavy Lift has delivered five mobile harbor cranes to ports in Bulgaria and Egypt. The five Terex Gottwald cranes weighed a total of 1,400 tonnes and were lifted and stowed on the deck of the multipurpose vessel HHL Rio de Janeiro. “Thanks to our in-house team of naval architects and engineers, we were able to develop a quick, on-the-spot solution for this very challenging project.
Our crews had to adjust the stowage and lashing plans for each crane in order to ensure we could accommodate all five of them on deck,” said Ian Broad, director of marine operations at HHL. Three of the cranes were loaded in Denmark at the ports of Nyborg, Frederikshavn and Aalborg, with remaining cranes loaded at the Port of Antwerp in Belgium. The cargo was then delivered to El Dekheila and Damietta in Egypt as well as the Bulgarian ports of Bourgas and Varna.
Hansa specializes in the transportation of heavy-lift, super heavy-lift, and project cargo. The firm’s management states an “increasing focus” on transport and installation in the sub-sea oil and gas markets, as well as the offshore wind farm sector. Photo: The HHL Rio de Janeiro.
