Heavy Lift Across the World

Tug trio sails with Hansa

December 4 - Hansa Heavy Lift (HHL) has transported three tugs from Singapore to Russia onboard its heavy lift vessel HHL New York.

The heaviest tug measured 33.7 m x 10.6 m x 22.3 m and weighed 467 tonnes.

"This project was a race against time, which required us to find an efficient and cost-effective solution to be able to lift the tugs and transport them safely on our vessel," explained Emek Ersin Takmaz, head of projects, engineering department, HHL. "Tailor-made steel structures were designed and suitable lifting solutions developed for each tug by our in-house engineers."

According to Takmaz, the heavy lift specialist sees potential in the floating unit market.

In separate projects, HHL also transported a bunker barge from Nova Scotia, Canada to Mazatlán, Mexico, and a petroleum barge from Antwerp, Belgium to Banana, Democratic Republic of Congo.

HHL Tokyo delivered the bunker barge, which measured 53.37 m x 12.49 m x 14 m, and weighed 516 tonnes, whilst HHL Venice transported the petroleum barge, measuring 71.65 m x 12.30 m x 6.9 m high, and weighed 410 tonnes.
