More cranes!

In 2008, Jumbo transported quite a number of harbor cranes. One of the heavy lift transports involved shipment of a so-called level luffing crane with a weight of 265 tons. The port of Tarragona in Spain sold this crane to the Dutch Delta Marine Terminal in Moerdijk.

Jumbo's H-type, the Fairlane, with two mast cranes of 400-tons lifting capacity each, was selected to carry out the job. In July 2008, the vessel sailed to Tarragona to load the crane of which the highest point extended 10 meters above the tips of the vessel's mast cranes!

After loading and sea fastening, mv Fairlane set sail to Flushing to discharge the crane onto a barge for the last part of the crane's voyage to Moerdijk.
