MSC Smashes India’s Heavy-Lift Cargo Record

MSC India

MSC India achieved another milestone in project cargo shipping solutions by loading a 140-ton transformer on MSC Regina from the port of Mundra, India. This is the heaviest ever breakbulk parcel moved by container ship from India, surpassing MSC’s previous record. The transformer is destined for a greenfield power transmission development project in Zambia.

MSC’s previous heavy-lift record was for loading a 115-ton transformer in 2018 at the Port of Nhava Sheva. However, India is catching up with countries such as China, Germany, South Korea and the USA, where pieces of more than 200 tons have already been loaded successfully on container vessels.

MSC has always put the customer at the centre of its business by providing access to dedicated project cargo equipment to ensure the loading goes smoothly. Lifting gears were used to make this a successful loading using the right combination of special equipment.

Putting onboard a 140-ton parcel is a substantial process and requires immense focus and precision. MSC’s teams demonstrated excellent teamwork and ensured synchronized coordination between the terminals, operations teams, stevedores, technical surveyors, and the shipper to analyze all the technical aspects of the loading.

MSC extended a special note of thanks to the team members at Adani Mundra Terminal, who extended their cooperation as always. This entire operation was completed in the allotted berthing window, enabling us to maintain the vessel’s service schedule.

The success of this operation has opened new doors for MSC to also cater to the heavy cargo category on container ships. This sets an excellent example of what perfect coordination and teamwork can do. Once again, MSC raised the bar, proving that expertise and hard work can make the impossible possible.
