Shipping agency services for the BigLift company. Cranes delivery to Bolshoy Kamen

Works on shipping agency services for the German-Dutch BigLift company, the world leader in the sphere of transportation of heavy cargo, was carried out in February 2021 as part of the construction completion of a cargo embankment and a deep-water pier at Zvezda SBC.

BigLift company had delivered ZPMC’s gantry cranes on a heavy-lift type of vessel of increased carrying capacity. The tasks of SDS Shipping specialists included classic shipping agency work: registration of vessel’s arrival, organization of pilotage and towing escort. Our work was complicated by extremely difficult ice conditions, since the thickness of the ice cover in Bolshoy Kamen bay in February reached one and a half meters. Despite the difficulties, the water surface was successfully prepared, and the ice cover — broken by tugboats. We ensured the berthing and discharging of cranes, which currently continue to work at the cargo and outfitting embankment No. 2 at Zvezda SBC.
