CSL oversee Beitstadsund Bridge Segment transportation for ZPMC

CSL Asia Shipping Co., Ltd, one of XLProjects members, have recently completed a shipment for Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries Company Limited (ZPMC). The cargo consisted of 12 packages of bridge segments and were delivered from Nantong, China to Malm port, Norway.

One of the challenges was the cargo was too long. Its maximum length was 75 meters with the gross weight of 420 metric tons. Most of the heavy lift vessels was not workable for this cargo but CSL team managed to find suitable vessel for it.

The second challenge was to keep the cargo protected from oil and other pollution, they however came up with the solution that meets client’s special requirement.

The third difficulty was the draft at Port of Discharge was only 4 meters long and the SPMT can only receive the cargo 30 meters long at most extended from the vessel because the terminal quayside was not strong enough. They used spacer pontoon and simulated discharging operation to solve these problems. In the beginning of January 2019, the vessel arrived at Malm Port in Norway safely. The whole operation took approximately one month.

“The heavy lift is always interesting and the bigger, the better” – CSL. They are one of the world’s leading heavy lift shipping companies. A team of dedicated and highly skilled professionals, with years of experiences and the mindset to think creatively, enables them to offer innovative and safe solutions for clients’ technically and logistically complex requirements.
