Höegh breaks Ennore record

Höegh Autoliners has transported a wind turbine blade from Ennore port, India to Shanghai, China on its ro-ro vessel Höegh Antwerp.

Measuring 28 m in length, Höegh Autoliners said that it was the longest breakbulk unit that has ever been loaded on a ro-ro ship at the Indian port.

The shipping line added that using a ro-ro solution significantly reduced the amount of lifting required for the project. In this case, the wind turbine blade was lifted to a maximum height of 2 m.

Atuldutt Sharma, breakbulk sales manager at Höegh Autoliners India, explained: “This can be compared to the cargo operations performed with a lo-lo vessel, where the windmill blade would likely travel a distance of 10-12 m horizontally, [while] hanging 15-20 m above the ground.”
