Capital Management-promoted Hansa Heavy Lift has strengthened its position in
the floating unit market after successfully completing a series of projects in
the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa, says a release on 4th Dec.
The moves included the transportation of 45 yachts in one consignment, as well
as the safe delivery of two oversized barges and three tugs. “We see much
potential in the floating unit market. Our very adaptable heavy lift ships and
engineering know-how ensures we are able to meet our customers’ bespoke
requirements globally, no matter the challenges,” said Emek Ersin Takmaz, Head
of Projects, Engineering Department, Hansa Heavy Lift.
consignment of 45 yachts was recorded as the largest number of yachts shipped
on a single vessel for Peters & May, and took place aboard HHL New York,
with the journeys originating in the USA and the Caribbean and concluding in
the UK and Germany, coordinated by bespoke logistics provider Peters & May.
Hansa Heavy Lift crews worked with Peters & May’s expert loadmasters to
load the yachts with their masts up at Port Everglades in Florida, USA, St
Thomas, and Antigua, and delivered them to the ports of Southampton, UK, and
Bremerhaven, Germany. “Working with a trusted partner, such as Hansa Heavy Lift
on key projects such as this, means all stages of the operation – from planning
to execution – are flawlessly executed. Both teams’ high attention to detail
allowed us to provide the optimum service our clients expect.
forward to working with Hansa Heavy Lift on exciting projects in the future,”
said Simon Judson, Global Operations Director Peters & May Group. Hansa
Heavy Lift also transported a bunker barge from Sydney, Nova Scotia, Canada, to
Mazatlán, Mexico, and a petroleum barge from Antwerp, Belgium to Banana,
Democratic Republic of Congo. HHL Tokyo delivered the bunker barge, which
measured 53.37m long by 12.49m wide by 14m high, and weighed 516 metric tonnes,
whilst HHL Venice transported the petroleum barge, measuring 71.65m long by
12.30m wide by 6.90m high, and weighed 410 metric tonnes. The heavy lift
specialist also transported three tugs from Singapore to Russia on board HHL
New York. The heaviest tug measured 33.7m long by 10.6m wide by 22.3m high and
weighed 467 metric tonnes. “This project was a race against time, which
required us to find an efficient and cost-effective solution to be able to lift
the tugs and transport them safely on our vessel,” said Takmaz. “Tailor-made
steel structures were designed and suitable lifting solutions developed for
each tug by our in-house engineers.
