Altius handles ship unloaders

December 22 - Altius has transported two fully erected ship unloaders from the port of Hamriyah in the UAE, to the port of Aqaba, Jordan.

Altius was responsible for the loading and stowage of the cranes, which were loaded onboard Jumbo Maritime's heavy lift vessel, Javelin, using the vessel's own crane.

To stow and secure the ship unloaders, which each weighed 520 tons (471.1 tonnes) and measured 60 m x 22 m x 30.5 m, Altius reinforced the cranes with pillars, which had to be removed at the port of destination prior to unloading.
