A Winter's tale for RHB terminal

United Heavy Lift’s Tasmanic Winter has arrived at RHB Stevedoring’s independent terminal at the port of Rotterdam to discharge 24 Damen tugboats and pontoons. 

The vessel has travelled along the Northern Sea Route (NSR) from China to deliver the units as part of Damen’s strategic positioning of built-for-stock vessels in Europe, as HLPFI reported here

The Damen vessels will now be discharged directly onto the water using the ship’s own cranes, with support from floating cranes and shorecranes at RHB’s terminal.
