Huge towage project completed in France
Solid project management and on-site expertise was the key to handling a challenging heavy lift project
Everything went as planned without any damages to the cargo – but more importantly, in a safe operation for all parties involved
Due to Blue Water’s vast experience of transporting floating units, we were again entrusted with the heavy lift transportation of a 870-metric ton floating hull block.
When studying the discharge location, the engineers concluded that the water depth in the discharge port of Braila, Romania deserved some detailed investigation.
“Braila is located upriver and the water depth varies seasonally. For a job like this, it is vital to charter a vessel that can do the job unaffected by the conditions”, says Subrata Podder, Transport Engineering Manager, Blue Water Singapore.
Our in-house Project and Chartering Experts chartered the MV ‘’Jumbo Jubilee’’ which proved to be the perfect fit for the job. She is equipped with cranes that have a combined lifting capacity of up to 1800 metric tons.
“Our own Supercargoes and Transport Engineers did a great job. After loading the cargo on board, the hull block was securely fastened for the transport to Braila in Romania. Everything went as planned without any damages to the cargo – but more importantly, in a safe operation for all parties involved”, says Victor Pay, from the Technical and Engineering department in Singapore, who attended the operation in Vung Tau, Vietnam.
