Hamburg : SAL Heavy Lift has completed a heavy lift contract with freight forwarder SDV involving more than 100,000 frtts for the Ichthys LNG Project near Darwin, Australia. SAL was contracted by SDV for five shipments performed on a consecutive basis from load-ports Sattahip, Masan, Busan and Shanghai. All shipments were discharged at the LNG Project\'s dule offloading facility. SAL\'s MV Regine with two 700 tonnes cranes and open hatch capability together with a third aft mount crane of 350 tonnes lift cap was selected to work for the project.
Among the items shipped were two acid gas removal units each more than 800 tonnes and two radiant convertor modules both more than 25 metres high. SAL shared that lifting height, rigging geometry and clearances became a complex problem which took some time to be successfully resolved. We have achieved everything we set out to achieve in this project, said Justin Archard, Managing Director of SAL Heavy Lift Singapore.
