Mina Musaffah in Abu Dhabi has been celebrating the successful offloading of the largest ship to berth there to date.
The MV Svenja (pictured) from the SAL shipping line, arrived with loads weighing just over 12,000 tonnes. She offloaded her heaviest piece of cargo – weighing nearly 570 tonnes. The ship sits 8.66 metres deep in the water.
Before this, the record for the largest ship to berth at the Port in terms of LOA (length overall) had lain with the MV Arzanah, which discharged over 7,000 tons of bagged urea fertilizer from Ruwais.
One of the highlights of heavy lifts in the Port over the last year occurred in August 2011 when two 500 tonne shore cranes used a tandem lift to lower heavy cargo onto a heavy trailer. The tandem operation had never been performed in Mina Musaffah before.
