6 x RTG deck cargo on MV Pacific Winter
Six container bridges – so called Rubber-Tyred Gantry Cranes (RTG) – are presently on the way from China to South America on our Heavy Lift Vessel Pacific Winter.
Each bridge has a weight of 180 tonnes and is nearly 30 metres high. Loading, lashing and trimming was quite challenging as this operation came near to stability limits. Visibilty is also limited and needs care of high professional crew and additional equipment.
Meanwhile half the trip is done without any problems, we wish calm seas and good luck for the rest of the journey!
