Heavy lift and project cargo specialist, Hansa Heavy Lift recently carried out the transportation of a carousel along with eight reels weighing over 3,500 metric tonnes, from Newcastle, the United Kingdom to Lagos, Nigeria. The cargo will be used at the Egina Oil Field off the coast of Nigeria.

The vessel HHL Lagos was used for this transport and was mobilized in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, to prepare the vessel with additional deck strength for the gigantic carousel that had a diameter over 25 meters and weight of 2,200 metric tonnes.

Hansa Heavy Lift Project Engineer, Tom Kröger said, “Close connection between the Hansa Heavy Lift engineering, superintendents and the vessels crew allowed for a fast deck reinforcement through the installation of additional under-deck stiffeners and a spooling platform, Our in-house team of experienced naval architects carried out structural calculations to assess the structural integrity of the vessel.”

Mr Kröger further added, “The team performed structural analyses to develop a tailor-made solution accordingly with the project related requirements and designed and installed bespoke shim-plates on deck to support Saipem with the accommodation of the carousel.”

Teams from Hansa Heavy Lift worked in conjunction with Saipem to achieve double banking with Saipem offshore construction vessel Normand Maximus to unspool the carousel, upon their arrival at the port of Lagos.

Chartering activities were managed by Olivier Credoz, who had this to say about the project, “Hansa Heavy Lift was an excellent partner to work with on this project, and the team impressed us with its efficiency and a high degree of detail, the strong cooperation between our team and Hansa Heavy Lift ensured a seamless project execution. We look forward to working with Hansa Heavy Lift again in the future.”
