Blue Water had comprehensive preparation and the willingness to move boundaries on top of the agenda when executing the giant logistics contracts.
A job well done through efficient teamwork
Blue Water Singapore was contracted by one of our reliable clients to transport two large gas engines and appertaining equipment from Bergen Engines in Norway to Singapore.
First part of the job included transport of the two gas engines – weighing 152 tons each - from the manufacturer in Hordvikneset to Bergen in Norway. In August, a special crane barge was hired for the transhipment via small coastal tonnage as the normal heavy lift vessels would not be able to berth at the designated quay in Hordvikneset.
After intermediate storage in the port of Bergen, the two gas engines and five containers of appertaining equipment were loaded on board a heavy lift vessel and shipped to Singapore.
“The heavy lift vessel arrived on time in Singapore, and the cargo was safely discharged into a dedicated storage area. The handling of the storage involved complicated jacking operations of the two gas engines, which was successfully completed with assistance from our in-house engineering team and trusted partners. The two engines are now stored at a local warehouse until final delivery will take place next year”, says Therkel Iversen, Project Manager, Blue Water Singapore, who controlled this successful job with great support from Blue Water’s Project teams in Norway and Denmark.
The need for air transport of temperature-controlled food products to global markets is growing. Blue Water handles fresh and frozen products to/from all over Europe.
Our long-term and steady cooperation with Scanvaegt Systems is the result of a close dialogue and our understanding of their logistics chain.
