Trans-Trading Moves Hamburg Turbines

Shipment Aboard Thalassa Mana

Freight handler Trans-Trading has delivered an export shipment of three gas turbines from Germany to Taiwan.

The outsized units each measured more than 9 meters long and weighed 118.5 tonnes. Sea freight as breakbulk cargo was arranged aboard the Thalassa Mana from Hamburg to Kaohsiung.

“The cargo was too heavy for the container bridges so that they had to use a floating crane. They organized a floating crane for a direct discharge onto the container vessel,” a spokesperson for Trans-Trading said.
Based in Germany, Trans-Trading is a member of the XL Projects network, which connects breakbulk operators worldwide.
