Corporate Coaster Operations AGL and Wirtz Shipping13. October 2017
Wirtz Shipping Antwerp and AGL Bremen just finished the transport of several modules for a process plant from Bremen Port to Antwerp Port.
Â The shipment consisted of the following items:
1Â Unit / 1000 x 507 x 853 cmÂ Â Â Â Â Â 97 to
1 Unit Â / 995 x 345 x 397 cmÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 27,7 to
1 Unit / 856 x 80 x 120 cmÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 3,3 to
Â The special task was to find a workable solution for the 8,53 m high units considering operational handling as well as costs.
Â The final performer for this movement was coaster â€œSATURNâ€ which was already built in 1966 , but is still certified on top level. The vessel only handles project cargo and was a perfect fit for this cargo.
Â Before any operation started, the complete operation was discussed between the port operator, surveyor, captain, stevedores and AGL.
Â The units have been successfully loaded by shore crane within 1 shift into coaster; all needed LSD works included. Wirtz Shipping Antwerp will take care about the coaster upon Arrival Antwerp incl. unlashing / unwelding and final transfer to heavy lift vessel for overseas transport.
Great teamwork, AGL and Wirtz Shipping!
