Blue Water Shipping has transported and assembled a 187-ton (169.6-tonne) hydraulic hammer and 175-ton (158.8-tonne) ram weight on behalf of piledriving specialist Menck.
Before the installation works could take place in Singapore, Blue Water was tasked with receiving the ram weight from Japan and shipping the MHU3500S hydraulic hammer from Hamburg, Germany.
The company’s project scope included the installation of spring suspension into the ram weight and the assembly of the ram weight as part of the hydraulic hammer.
“Everything went according to schedule or rather ahead of schedule. We had originally planned for five days’ work, but the entire job was completed within two days,” said Victor Pay, marine and logistics manager at Blue Water Singapore.
