July 10 - Four steam boilers, each weighing 200 tonnes, have been shipped from Bilbao Port in Spain to Saudi Arabia, onboard the Rickmers-Linie vessel Rickmers Jap
The units were manufactured in the Basque Country before being transported by river barge to Bilbao Port. The barges were moored alongside Rickmers Japón, which used its onboard cranes to lift the heavy components.
The operation was conducted at the Agemasa terminal at E2 dock and the entire shipment, including 27 smaller items, weighed a total of 1,015 tonnes.
The boilers are intended for use in a gas power plant under-construction in Saudi Arabia.
In addition to Agemasa, tug boat operator Remolcadores Ibazabal oversaw the operation.
