Cuxhaven, Germany, before their transport to Tuzla in Turkey, where they will be used as part of a floating power station. The first part of the project


began in April 2019 when Rhenus moved the MAN 18V51/60 TS diesel engines, which measure 15 m x 5 m x 7m, from their production site in France to Cuxhaven for temporary storage. “Until we were able to ship


the first engines to their place of deployment, they were initially stored at the Cuxport terminal in a building with sufficient ceiling height so that they were protected from any moisture,” said Marcus Janowsky, project manager at Rhenus Project Logistics. The first six 325-tonne power


generators have since been transported to Tuzla, Turkey, onboard the heavy lift vessel


Rhenus moves MAN engines in Germany R


henus Project Logistics is handling the transport of 13 MAN diesel engines in


BBC Lagos. The remaining seven generators are due to be shipped during the next few months, said Rhenus. All 13 of the MAN engines


will be used by Turkish energy supplier Karpowership. The company utilises decommissioned bulk carriers,


heavy lift ships and inland waterway vessels to develop floating power stations. Overall, Karpowership operates 22 floating power stations in more than ten countries. l HLPFI’s report on the Turkish project logistics market can be seen on pages 42-49.


Al Faris transports refinery components


Al Faris has moved more than 15 oversized components from Jebel Ali Free Zone to a storage yard in Dubai World Central (DWC) in the UAE for an oil refinery project. The shipment included three


sections of a refinery column, measuring 32 m x 11 m x 10 m and weighing up to 315 tonnes. To move the components, Al


Faris utilised 12-axle Goldhofer hydraulic trailers as well as SPMTs. The biggest challenge for this


project, according to Al Faris, was finding a suitable route for the cargoes. Along one of the roads, traffic had to be stopped for 30 minutes in order to allow a convoy of four trailers and six police escort vehicles to pass.


www.heavyliftpfi.com For the offloading process, an


Enerpac SBL900 gantry system, which is equipped with two- stage lifting cylinders, enabling lifts of up to 11.3 m, was used. One of the challenges of this


phase of the project was the confined space Al Faris had to work in, along with the tight


timescale and lifting precision needed. A customised platform, made out of steel mats, was required to reach the necessary lifting height. l An overview of the opportunities on offer in the Middle East Gulf can be seen on pages 114-119.


NEWS in BRIEF


Big Carl completes big lift Sarens’ 250 m tall SGC 250 ring crane, known as Big Carl, lifted a 170-tonne prefabricated part of a reactor’s steel containment liner at EDF’s Hinkley Point C project site in the UK during December. According to EDF, engineers and lifting specialists worked through the night to complete “the first big lift” at the project site.


Höegh ships filtration units Höegh Autoliners has transported six filtration systems from Jebel Ali in the UAE to Singapore for an offshore project. The units were transported onboard Höegh Trapper.


ALS moves TBM in London ALS has coordinated the transport of tunnel boring machine (TBM) sections in London, UK. The components included a stationary shell, which measured 2.7 m x 3.4 m x 3.4 m and weighed 45 tonnes; a 50-tonne forward shell, which measured 2.7 m x 3.4 m x 3.4 m; and a tail, which weighed 8 tonnes.


Freight Traders power lift Freight Traders has discharged a 130-tonne heat exchanger and three pre-heaters for a power plant project in New Zealand. The scope of work included the part charter, load supervision, stevedoring, marshalling, storage arrangement, Customs clearance, quarantine inspection and partial delivery to the project site.


Tilbury2 bridge takes shape A 360-tonne bridge has been lifted into place as part of the construction of Tilbury2 terminal in the UK. The steel bridge, which measured 54 m x 15 m x 5 m, was towed from Rotterdam, the Netherlands, to the construction site. Bonn & Mees’ floating sheerleg crane Matador 3 lifted the structure into place.


DEME installs foundations DEME has installed 58 monopile foundations and two offshore substation foundations at the SeaMade offshore wind farm in the Belgian North Sea. DEME began the works in September 2019 using its offshore installation vessel Innovation.
