Shiploader safely transported from China to the USA Hansa Heavy Lift has successfully transported a shiploader weighing over 560 metric tons from Nantong/China to Portland, Oregon/USA for Sandvik Mining and Construction. HHL Richards Bay safely transported the shiploader, which measures 36.50 m in length × 56.44 m in width × 31.50 m in height, discharging it at the Port of Portland where engineers installed it onto the pier. “The biggest challenge was to lift the shiploader over the conveyor rail at the Port of Portland, whilst ensuring neither sustained damaged,” said Gareth Hamer, Head of Cargo Management, Americas, Hansa Heavy Lift. “We then completed the installation of the tripper car and portal under the direction of Sandvik. The discharge operation took place over five days and required detailed planning, as well as close cooperation with all parties involved.” Hansa Heavy Lift engineers used three lifting beams to move the shiploader on and off the vessel at each port, as it only had lifting trunnions on one side. The size of the cargo and narrow width of the pier meant that the third lifting beam had to be lowered onto a barge after the discharge operation was completed. f+h Intralogistics 5/2015 7
