Jumbo has recently completed her activities in the first stage of the Wiggins Island Coal Export Terminal Project in Queensland, Australia.
18 Nov 2013
The project was planned meticulously, to ensure efficient operations. At one stage 2 J-class vessels were sailing from China, one day apart, one with gantry equipment which was discharged to barges for further transport to site and one with wharf decks which where directly discharged at the currently developed quay where in the future the coal ships will berth and be loaded from. This berth is located well outside the island to have unrestricted access to deep water. Safety, as with everything carried out by Jumbo, was given the highest priority.
Work on the project commenced in May of this year, with the 1st of six consecutive voyages using mv Fairpartner.
