December 31 - FESCO Logistics, a provider of worldwide logistics services and a division of FESCO North America, is busy with the shipment of a 100 tonne roadheader to Russia for use in the construction of the site of the 2014 winter Olympics in Sochi
The ALPINE MINER ATM 105-IC is a boom-type roadheader of the 100 tonne class, used for mechanised tunneling in hard and abrasive rock formations.
The cargo was loaded onto a MAFI trailer, secured by 15 chain lashings, in Baltimore, Maryland and carried via ro-ro vessel to Derince, Turkey and then transshipped to Novorossiysk, Russia.
