“This was a challenging operation that required strong engineering expertise and close cooperation with the customer through all stages of the project, from planning to discharge, in order to ensure a smooth and flawless operation,” said Bozidar Ukas, Head of Offshore, Engineering Department, HANSA HEAVY LIFT.“Due to the equipment’s overall dimensions, with the shiploader measuring 63.5 meters in length and the reclaimer measuring 57 meters in length, lifting operations had to be managed meticulously and attention to detail was a must.  We used the vessel’s cranes to add the shiploader’s counterweights for lifting operations and to remove them for the voyage to ensure safe lifting and sailing conditions.”HANSA HEAVY LIFT secured the cargo with extra lashing for the long-sea passage due to the potentially adverse weather conditions, and also made sure that ship movement alongside the quay was minimised. Mobility and power checks were also carried out due to the length of time the equipment spent in storage.“The HANSA HEAVY LIFT team handled this project efficiently and with a high degree of professionalism, keeping us involved and informed at every stage of the process,” said Luc Rom, Manora Logistics. “It was a pleasure dealing with the commercial, operational and engineering people in the company. And the crew on the vessels executed all operations to perfection. All our expectations were surpassed, and we would look forward to working with HANSA HEAVY LIFT again in the future.”
