The 4,000-tonne (3,628.7-tonne), 8,000 cu m disassembled crane was shipped onboard the tweendeck vessel Ella. GEFCO worked closely with the customer to meet the complex stowage and lashing requirements, as well as the Customs process. 

The shipment arrived in Antwerp, Belgium, after 32 days of travel.

Vincent Habryn, global head of industrial project cargo at GEFCO Air & Sea, said: “This project was an excellent showcase of our ability to provide a seamless and efficient industrial project cargo service, despite a number of challenges we guaranteed the safe delivery across both river and sea, for our valued customer.”
