Complex operation successfully carried out
Recently the universal cargo vessel “Industrial Ruby” called at the port of Vyborg. Its unique feature was its two lifting cranes, each with a boom of 15m and lifting capacity of 250 tons. The vessel arrived to load dredger “Beaver” onboard.
As told by Anton Saveliev, chief process engineer of Port Logistic LLC, any loading of a dredger is a rather technically complicated operation, especially in winter. He explained that the difficulty of this operation lays in the fact that the cargo is heavy and long, and must be lifted by two cranes simultaneously, noting that one lifting unit does not have sufficient capacity.
Mr. Saveliev proudly stated that the loading was completed efficiently and safely due to the professionalism of the port dockers and all those who took part, including the crew of m/v “Industrial Ruby”.
