German Heavy Cargo specialists Hansa Heavy Lift have successfully completed the ocean transportation from Belgium to Namibe Port in Angola of an enormous Shiploader weighing over 513 metric tonnes with a volume of 64,480 m3.

The huge cargo was shipped on the vessel HHL Valparaiso along with other auxiliary equipment including a tripper car, reclaimer and elevator as well other accessories. All cargo was discharged at Namibe Port, Angola, Southern Africa.

Head of Offshore, Engineering Dept for Hansa Heavy Lift Bozidar Ukas said, “Due to the equipment’s overall dimensions, with the shiploader measuring 63.5 metres in length and the reclaimer measuring 57 metres in length, lifting operations had to be managed meticulously and attention to detail was a must to ensure safety at all times. We used the vessel’s cranes to add the shiploader’s counterweights for the lifting operations and to remove them for the voyage to ensure safe lifting and sailing conditions.”

Extra lashing was used to secure the cargo for the long journey and to ensure maximum safety in case of any adverse weather in the Namibe – Southern Afircan region. Extra care was also taken to minimize the amount of ship movement that was needed alongside the quay. Several other maintenance checks were carried out regarding power and mobility due to the abnormally long period the equipment had remained in storage.

Luc Rom of Manora Logistics commented about the project, “The HANSA HEAVY LIFT team handled this project efficiently and with a high degree of professionalism, keeping us involved and informed at every stage of the process. It was a pleasure dealing with the commercial, operational and engineering people in the company. And the crew on the vessel executed all operations to perfection. All our expectations were surpassed, and we would look forward to working with HANSA HEAVY LIFT again in the future.”
