Heavy roller on its way to China

February -20- Hamburg-based general and project cargo specialist, Rickmers-Linie, has sent a 250 tonne roller on its way from Germany to China.

The roller, manufactured by Gontermann-Peipers was loaded onto the Rickmers Hamburg at the Port of Hamburg's Wallmann Terminal.

The ship is equipped with special cranes for handling heavy goods. The two most powerful cranes on the vessel can lift 320 tonnes each, or 640 tonnes when working together. 

The Rickmers Hamburg is one of ten ships of the Superflex Heavy MPC class which are used in the Round The World Pearl String Service, linking the Port of Hamburg with the Middle East, Southeast Asia, the Far East and North America.

The Port of Hamburg has numerous special terminal facilities for handling project cargo, which is considered to be amongst the most important goods handled at the port.
