Rickmers-Linie in record Rijeka move

October 26 - Rickmers-Linie's heavy lift vessel Rickmers Tokyo has loaded 15 transformers, weighing between 56 and 142 tonnes each, at the Port of Rijeka in Croatia.

Rickmers-Linie claims that this was the largest number of transformers ever loaded in a single call at the Croatian port.

Three of the transformers were manufactured by Končar-Distribution & Special Transformers (Končar-D&ST) in Zagreb, while 12 were produced by Končar Power Transformers - a joint venture between Siemens and Končar Holding.

Handling of the oversize loads at the port was taken care of by Liburnia Maritime Agency.

"Regular calls at Adriatic ports in recent months demonstrate the enhanced flexibility of our liner services from Europe via the Middle East and India towards South East Asia and the Far East," said Kai-Henrik von Taube, director, line management at Rickmers-Linie.
