Last week, BigLift’s module carrier BigLift Baffin departed from Nantong, China, carrying four Konecranes Neo-Panamax ship-to-shore (STS) cranes for Georgia Ports Authority in Savannah, USA. With its cargo, the BigLift Baffin was the widest vessel (159 metres) that ever sailed the Yangtze River.
The impressive cranes, built at Nantong Wison Heavy Industries, have an outreach and lifting height adequate for 24,000 TEU vessels.
BigLift operates a fleet of four heavy transport vessels (HTVs) with a combined deckspace of 20,500 m2. BigLift Baffin’s deckspace of 5250 m2 is being used optimally in this shipment. Watch a video of the transport below.
