Heavy lifting operation
Transformer discharged by triple lifting
On March 13 KCT Ro-Ro and general cargo terminal accommodated m/v Fleet Star with a shipment of OOG cargo from Turkey. Among other break-bulk units the ship delivered an autotransformer for LITGRID project of Šiauliai TS renovation. The 170 tons cargo unit was discharged with the help of three cranes: two vessel cranes and the new KCT crane Gottwald G HMK 5506 were employed to synchronically lift the transformer off the deck and safely land it on a special purpose vehicle.
In the coming days the transformer will move to its destination in Šiauliai.
