CEA Projects in helicopter move

January 28 - Cranes & Equipment Asia Co Ltd (CEA Projects) has assisted the Royal Thai Navy with the transportation of a Sikorsky SH-60 Seahawk helicopter.

The Seahawk helicopter was moved from its base at Utapao Airport in the Rayong province to one of CEA's facilities in Laem Chabang, where it was processed and shipped to Australia for a full refit.

The helicopter's main rotor blades were packed into a military cargo crate, while the tail rotor blades were placed in a CEA custom made crate and surrounded by rubber to avoid any damage during transportation.

A 25-tonne capacity crane and Modulift spreader bars were used to lift the helicopter onto a CEA Air Ride trailer, before being lashed, strapped and covered with tarpaulin for the 60 km journey to Laem Chabang.

The helicopter was then lifted from the trailer using a CEA reach stacker and placed on a 40 ft flatrack for the short journey to the port, where the rotor blades and other accessories were packed into a 40 ft container and loaded onto a vessel bound for Australia.

CEA Projects is a member of the Project Cargo Network (PCN) representing Thailand.
