December 28 - Steder Group from The Netherlands, a member of the Cargo Equipment Experts (CEE) and Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC), has successfully demobilised and returned dredging equipment from Trapani in Italy to Zeebrugge in Belgium.

As well as ocean transport, Steder Group was responsible for all local transportation and discharge into the storage yard of its customer in Zeebrugge. The largest item was 45 m x 7.07 m x 6.05 m, weighing some 245 tonnes.

After a successful loading operation in Trapani, the vessel headed for Zeebrugge where it was met by extremely tough operating conditions in the port, due to low temperatures and heavy snowfall.
