L.Branco returns machines

August 5 - L.Branco - Navega

The heavier machine weighed in at 60 tonnes and had the dimensions 27.71 m x 3 m x 4.35 m, while the smaller weighed 21 tonnes and measured 12.82 m x 3.24 m x 3.72 m.

L.Branco explained that the railway construction machines, which belong to a Portuguese contractor, had been working in Morocco for several years and were returning to their base in Portugal.

Working with SDV Portugal, L.Branco chartered a vessel to transport the machines from Casablanca to Leixoes and organised the discharging operations, which required two 100-tonne capacity cranes.
