The heaviest cargo since the launch of HANSA HEAVY LIFT
has been loaded by “HHL Valparaiso”

One of HANSA HEAVY LIFT’s P2-class vessels has lifted the heaviest cargo since the foundation of the company in June 2011. A reactor with a weight of 1283 tonnes was loaded in Higashi Harima, Japan on 13th of June, 2013. When the P2-1400 type “HHL Valparaiso” arrived she was scheduled to load 4 reactors under deck. Three reactors had a weight between 350 and 568 tonnes and one had a weight of 1283 tonnes.

The discharge of the heaviest piece took place on June 24th, 2013 in Sovetskaya Gavan, Russia. “HHL Valparaiso” used its on-board cranes in tandem to provide a lifting capacity of 1400 tonnes. The discharge of the remaining reactors was successfully completed within the next two days.

Any Lifting of heavy cargoes close to the maximum lifting capacity is always exceptionally challenging. Additionally in this case the crew faced bad weather conditions in Russia and had to discharge the reactors onto barges, complicating the already difficult operation.

“It makes me proud to see the positive development of HANSA HEAVY LIFT within the market and that our expertise and service are in demand. We are recognized as experts for complex and bigger cargoes. Our good reputation is based on our highly qualified team as well as the modern fleet of P-class vessels that can do extra ordinary lifts”, explained Tomas Dyrbye, CEO at HANSA HEAVY LIFT.
