Timelapse 1 SHILO at Nouadhibou

Timelapse 2 SHILO at Nouadhibou

On the 22nd of October the Jumbo Javelin successfully completed the transport of a 1.125t shiploader from Sines, Portugal to Nouadhibou, Mauritania.

 

 

The centre of gravity of the shiploader was very off centre, therefore the shuttle needed to be extended in order to shift the centre of gravity to an acceptable location for lifting. When the shiploader was safely landed on deck, the shuttle was retracted again for transport, still leaving an overhang of 30m.

At Nouadhibou, the designated quay was completely exposed to the sea which resulted in a constant swell. This was well addressed beforehand and necessary precautions such as additional tugger winches where mobilized in order to safely control the load during discharge. The weight of the crane plus the required outreach of 21m and the fact that the crane had to be positioned in three rails (instead of two) made this a challenging operation which was completed just under 3.5 hrs.  SOURCE: Jumbo
