Challenge: Transportation of two large industrial Cochran Thermax steam boilers
Journey: Co Cavan, Ireland to Alexandria, Egypt
The transport of two large industrial Cochran Thermax steam boilers from Co Cavan, Ireland to Alexandria, Egypt was never going to be easy; but a last minute change by the carrier created an additional challenge for our team to overcome.
The original shipment plan was to transport the boilers to Cork, Ireland for forward shipment. The carrier then reduced the permitted size of the vessels from Ireland meaning there was no longer a viable shipping option from the country for cargo of this height.
The 65 tonne industrial boilers, each measuring 7.55 x 4.63 x 4.73 metres, needed a last minute route plan. We looked for options via mainland Europe or the UK which involved additional route planning along with increased transport costs. Yet we had a commitment to our client to keep as close as possible to the original shipping budget.
The vessel planning was made easier due to the joint operation between Allseas Global and our sister company DKT Allseas who exclusively represent Bahri Lines in the UK. We utilised the vessel Bahri Yanbu due to its exceptional on-board lifting gear capabilities enabling the smooth process of loading this large and complex cargo.
The Bahri Line service offered the only option from the UK to coincide with required transport dates and permits.
With colleagues working remotely throughout the Bank holiday and a strong joint effort between our team at Allseas and DKT Allseas, we achieved what some believed to be an impossible shipment task.
