The fleet of the Finnish State Railways (VR) will receive further Locomotives. On behalf of Trans-Trading Hamburg, the Lübeck Port Company (LHG) has recently refitted three Vectron locomotives numbers 40,41 and 42 with each unit weighing 90 tons and dimensions 19.04 x 3.05 x 4.44 meters.
The three locomotives have travelled “on their own axles” from Bavarian plant in Munich to Seelandkai terminal, where they were prepared for the ocean transport to Hanko, Finland via Ferry Service from Transfennica.
The Trans-Trading lifting gear was fixed on the mobile cranes and the reloading of the locomotives from rail onto a heavy duty roll trailer were handled with Trans-Trading transport beddings attached underneath the locomotives.
LHG and Trans-Trading were jointly executing the sophisticated security measures to meet all safety requirements. After the heavy package was tied properly, dockers pulled the roll trailers with the three locomotives aboard a Transfennica ship.
The locomotives arrived safely and on time at the port of destination in Hanko, Finland.
