Shipping.dk delivers on Spanish high speed train work

December 7 - Project teams from Shipping.dk have transported a Herrenknecht tunnel boring machine from Kehl in Germany to Barcelona in Spain where it will be used in the construction of the Girona AVE high speed train line.

The cargo was transported by barge from Kehl to Rotterdam, then transhipped to a geared heavy lift vessel chartered specially for the occasion. 

The most significant items of the overall consignment consisted of items weighing 220 tonnes, 116 tonnes and 90 tonnes with the largest piece measuring 21 m long by 7 m wide. 

Three offices of Shipping.dk's organisation were involved in the project. The company's Fredericia office chartered the vessel, whilst the Rotterdam office managed the transhipment operation. The company's Bilbao and Barcelona offices arranged the discharge and all local formalities with the forwarding company that was engaged on the project.
