Internationally haul (1) oversized, out-of-gauge packaged Indeck Boiler
Due to the boilers’ excessive shipping weight of 141 TONS (311,000 lbs) and dimensions of 17.01 X 3.91 M X 5.38 M (358 CBM), specialised breakbulk equipment was used.
|Destination:||Houston, USA to Gladston Australia|
|Shipping Weight:||141 TONS ( 311,000 lbs )|
|How We Did it:||17.01 X 3.91 M X 5.38 M (358 CBM)
Due to cargo weight and dimensions, a number of complex loading operations had to take place using specialised OOG equipment.
Heavy Lift Operations:
- Two (2) electro-hydraulic cranes SWL of 120MT each or 240 Mt in tandem
- 12 axle multiline, ESS (Electronic System Steering) trailer
The out-of-gauge boiler was lifted by two (2) side-by-side 120-tonne crawler cranes under hook onto a special heavy haul 12 axle multiline, ESS (Electronic System Steering) rail car. It was then transported across the quay and loaded shipside onto wood dunnage on the starboard lower Deck hold. Once in position, lashings took place.
Road transport to the site was completed within 48 hours. The entire loading operation went smoothly with great cooperation from all parties.
