Last week, MSC’s Project Cargo team successfully shipped two heavy lift spreader bars of up to 59 tonnes to Las Palmas.
“The handling of such oversized cargoes is often exceeding the capabilities of regular cranes. Loaded in Rotterdam port with MSC’s high-capacity Gantry Cranes, the discharge in Las Palmas was initially not technically possible.”
The team therefore employed a third party 500-tonne mobile crane at the local terminal. This enabled them to achieve the necessary 20+m outreach for these 25-metre-long units.
Handled by expert crane drivers, the cargo was safely discharged directly onto the receiver’s truck.
