Höegh moves generator to Mombasa

Höegh Autoliners has transported a 55-tonne turbine generator from Ennore, India to Mombasa, Kenya.

In the pre-planning phase, the team found that the height of the generator would pose a challenge during the transhipment operations.

Atuldutt Sharma, breakbulk sales manager in India, explained: “At 4.3 m, the height of the unit was too high for transhipment operations. Most of the vessels in the Middle East to India and Africa service have a door opening of around 5 m so the solution was to use Höegh’s super-low roll trailer. The super-low roll trailer is only 0.47 m high and is designed to load breakbulk cargo that is 25-30 cm higher than what we were previously able to transport.”

The unit was stowed and lashed under deck before it was transported to Mombasa.
