A first for Hansa and Liebherr

On behalf of broker HBB Hanseatic Break Bulk, Hansa Heavy Lift transported two ship-to-shore gantry cranes for Liebherr Container Cranes from the Doyle Shipping Group (DSG) terminal at the port of Cork, Ireland to Hull in the UK.

Andre Milschus, managing director at HBB Hanseatic Break Bulk, pointed out that this was the first time fully assembled ship-to-shore cranes were transported via a lift-on and lift-off method on a heavy lift vessel after being built in Ireland.

Each crane measured 81.4 m by 30.3 m by 57.3 m; Hansa and Liebherr worked together to design tailor-made seafastening and load spreading structures, as well as special rigging for loading and discharge.

At Cork, the cranes were moved using SPMTs. Once lifted onto HHL Lagos, the first of the cranes was moved to the forward end of the hatch covers. The second was then lifted directly into its stowage position in the cargo hold.

Both cranes were discharged directly onto the rails at the port of Hull.

Denis Doolan, transport and shipping manager of Liebherr Container Cranes, said: “This project was quite a challenging one from a logistics point of view and took months in the planning.”
