: 110Te 4 units Washing Tanks
In May 2010, the Singapore Office was approached by one of our client to supply skidding material and provision of supervision for the skidding works of 4 units washing tanks on board of one of Jumbo’s Heavy Lift ships.
The Tanks had to be loaded at Sattahip Port Thailand by ships crane.
Due to the capacity of the ships cranes the tanks could only be placed on the center of the ship, the solution is to load all 4 tanks and to skid them evenly on the deck.
After loading, the vessel set sail to Papua New Guinea. On arrival in PNG, the reversed process carried for offloading.
Concurrently, Yew Choon is also awarded another related job by the manufacturer of the tanks for transporting the tanks from the storage area at Sattahip Port along side the ship.
