Hansa Heavy Lift (HHL) has transported 13 modules measuring over 147,124 cbm from China to Australia, to help with the redevelopment of the Nyrstar Smelter in Port Pirie.

The cargo was loaded on four separate voyages at the Yanda Module Yard in Jiangsu, China, with the largest piece weighing 690 metric tonnes, and measuring 28 metres in length, 17 metres in width, and 26.7 metres in height.

“This was a particularly challenging project which required the use of three of our vessels on four separate trips operating at their full capacity, including HHL New York, HHL Lagos, and HHL Valparaiso,” said Henry Woo, Head of Asia-Pacific (APAC), Hansa Heavy Lift. “Lifting and rigging were particularly challenging for this project due to the height of the modules combined with the offset centre of gravity, with up to five lifting beams required for a single lift. Our team of in-house engineers managed this by developing innovative rigging solutions as well as enacting a careful loading and engineering plan.”

“We are proud to have completed the project with a smooth execution at every stage, resulting in a safe and on-time delivery of all modules,” said Jens Grever, Head of Cargo Management, Asia, Hansa Heavy Lift. The Port Pirie Redevelopment Project will convert one of the world’s largest primary lead smelting facilities, operated by Nyrstar, to a multi metals processing and recovery facility.

Ben Williams, Project Co-ordinator, from Geodis added that,“Hansa Heavy Lift took every detail into consideration, as well as keeping a clear and open line of communication throughout, once again proving themselves to be a reliable super heavy lift partner.”
