NEM Energy chooses to roll the cargo

January 12 - Roll Group has transported two boiler blocks, each weighing nearly 2,000 tons (1,814 tonnes) and two combustor units, as well as air fan ducting structures and multiple steel frames from Taiwan to Malaysia for NEM Energy.

Due to the weight of the cargo, Roll Group had to reinforce the loadout quay. 150 steel beams were used so the load could be spread over a larger area.  

Roll-Lift used 72 axle lines of self-propelled modular transporters (SPMT) to roll the boiler blocks and combustor units on board RollDock Sky. For the remainder of the cargo the vessel's own heavy lift cranes were used. 

Roll Group's engineers worked together with NEM Energy to produce a sea fastening design which was integrated into the boiler block.
