Hansa Heavy Lift recently transported five Gottwald mobile harbor cranes, weighing a total of 1,400 metric tonnes, first loading them in Denmark and Belgium and delivering them to Bulgaria and Egypt.

All five cranes were lifted and stowed fully erected on deck, which limited the line of sight for the crew aboard HHL Rio de Janeiro, requiring an extra radar scanner to be installed. In addition to the five cranes carried on deck, the voyage included the transportation of four grabs, two bromma container spreaders and a dismantled Demag mobile crane, which were shipped under deck. Hansa noted that extra risk assessments were also carried out prior to commencing the voyage, in order to fully comply with all local and flag regulations.

“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,” said Ian Broad, Director Marine Operations, Hansa Heavy Lift. “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.”

“We were able to overcome very tight stowage, which at places only had 20 to 30 cm clearance, by using heavy lift platforms to increase available deck space,” said Captain Johan Buysse, Cargo Superintendent, Hansa Heavy Lift.
