Inch-perfect in Lubeck

[ July 17, 2012   //   ]

BigLift Shipping completed the last of two challenging shipments on its vessels Happy Diamond and Happy Dover for the US Steel Corporation in Clairton, Pennsylvania, from Lubeck (Germany), to Mobile. The 350-tonne loads had to be placed inside the hold with only inches to spare on each side. Moreover, due to limited water depth at the yard in Lubeck, it was not possible to directly moor the vessels alongside the quay which temporarily discharged nearly all their tweendeck cargo at another location, prior to berthing at reduced draft.
