Cargo shipping line Hansa Heavy Lift has transported two fully assembled ship-to-shore container gantry cranes from Ireland to the UK for Liebherr Container Cranes.

The cranes measured 81 meters long, 30 meters wide and 57 meters high, and were shipped aboard the multipurpose vessel HHL Lagos. They were loaded at DSG Terminal, Port of Cork, and discharged at the Port of Hull, UK.

“This was a complex project where in-depth engineering knowledge and operational expertise was an absolute requirement throughout all stages,” said Emek Ersin Takmaz, head of projects at HHL.

Based in Hamburg, Germany, Hansa operates a fleet of 14 multipurpose heavy-lift vessels with lifting capacity of up to 1,400 tonnes.
