Four polyethylene reactors, the largest of which weighed 227 tons (206 tonnes), have moved through DP World’s Jebel Ali Port in the UAE.
The reactors arrived and were offloaded at Jebel Ali in collaboration with CMA CGM after being shipped from Rotterdam, the Netherlands. As some of the largest project cargoes loaded onboard a container ship in the Middle East, the operations mobilised more than 100 specialists from across the supply chain.
In Jebel Ali, the cargoes were handled with the help of a floating crane from Drydocks World, a DP World Company, and arrived on two consecutive sailings.
Romain Vigneaux, Dubai agency general manager at CMA CGM Group, said: “This shipment is a milestone achievement for Jebel Ali, and the container sector in the UAE. It testifies our expertise in shipping highly technical projects, while offering key advantages such as regular and reliable sailings with high-frequency and fast transit time.”
