(Asia) Largest Mobilization in Firm’s History
Multipurpose shipping line SAL Heavy Lift has transported outsized piles for a Taiwanese offshore wind farm.
The breakbulk transport involved moving six units with lengths of up to 80 metres for a pile load test project. Cargo was transported on SAL’s DP2 installation vessel Lone.
“To realize the project, SAL launched a substantial preparation phase – which turned into the largest mobilization of a vessel in the history of SAL. To lift the long piles vertically, we needed to design, manufacture, install and test a jib extension to one of the Lone’s cranes,” a spokesperson for SAL said.
SAL Heavy Lift, operates a fleet of 16 heavy-lift vessels with combined crane capacities up to 2,000 tonnes. The firm is a subsidiary of German shipping group Harren, and is an exhibitor at Breakbulk Europe.
