Hansa doubles up on Northern Sea Route

December 18 - Hansa Heavy Lift's HHL Lagos and HHL Hong Kong have delivered infrastructure cargo and large tugs from the Russian Baltic to the Far East using the Northern Sea Route before its winter closure this month.

HHL Hong Kong loaded four assembled cranes, each weighing 400 tonnes and measuring 56 m high, at the Port of Ust Luga, while HHL Lagos loaded six tug boats, weighing a maximum of 700 tonnes, at the Port of St. Petersburg.

Hansa Heavy Lift
decided to direct the HHL Hong Kong via the Northern Sea Route, due to the air draft limitations of the Suez Canal and the commercial non-viability of sailing around the Cape of Good Hope.

HHL Lagos was also sent via the route to save bunkers, ensure shorter transit times and avoid the high risk area around the Gulf of Aden.

Both P2-Class vessels are equipped with two 700 tonne capacity cranes, combinable to 1,400 tonnes.
