260-tonne facility shipped

BREMEN. Following four months of assembly, in October BLG LOGISTICS loaded a 260-tonne grain shiploader onto the ship Combi Dock 1 in Neustadt Port. In addition to the great weight, the operation was complicated by the unusually high centre of gravity of the equipment. The shiploader was transported to the port of Rouen, where it will load grain from the silos onto ships. “Whatever is too large or too heavy to be transported to the port is assembled from individual parts or modules and then loaded”, explains Sven Riekers, director of BLG Cargo.
