Jumbo Shipping bangs the drums in Antwerp

May 18 - Jumbo Shipping's Fairplayer successfully loaded several heavy items, among them two 625 tonne coke drums, each 42m long and with a diameter of 10m, at the port of Antwerp.

The largest lift was a 1,200 tonne vacuum tower 50m in length and 17m in diameter. It was manoeuvred to the quayside by SPMT prior to being loaded on a barge for positioning between ship and quayside. All non-essential ship staff were sent ashore prior to the 90 minute loading operation.
