Tschudi delivers first half of Hising Bridge

Tschudi Logistics Denmark has delivered the first of two batches of components for the Hising Bridge in Gothenburg.

The finished bridge will be 350 m long and will consist of 42 separate elements – 22 of which have now arrived in the Swedish city.

The components were loaded onto the Symphony Spirit in Bilbao, using the vessel’s two cranes in a tandem lift. The heaviest item weighed 149 tonnes and the total weight of the shipment was 1,774 tonnes. The journey from Spain to Sweden took five days.

Tschudi Logistics Denmark was responsible for finding and chartering a suitable vessel for the job; designing the transport scope; loading and discharging the oversized elements; and lashing and securing of the cargo.

Tschudi Logistics Sweden (located in central Gothenburg) oversaw the unloading process, again using the Symphony Spirit’s cranes.

Thomas Vestergaard, chief commercial officer at Tschudi Logistics Group, said: “We started our preparations as early as 2015 and it is a delight to see how all of our hard work is coming together in a smooth operation. To ensure optimal handling of cargo, we were present on site, both in Bilbao for loading and here in Gothenburg for discharge.”
