As part of Blue Water Shipping's agreement with Dutch company SBM Offshore for all logistics in connection with the FPSO Cidade de Paraty project in Brazil, Blue Water Shipping in Aberdeen recently arranged part of a series of project transports.
Transport of the 3,200 ton of project cargo to Brazil followed careful preparations and great efforts, as cargo dimensions, type, supplier location and general infrastructure in Scotland provided challenges. Several of the items were taller than 10 meters and weighing in excess of 126 metric tons.
The supplier was located in the small town of Buckie, which was not equipped to handle large heavy lift vessels. The solution was to transport all items on a small coaster from Buckie to Invergordon for direct transfer at sea to a heavy lift vessel.
The heavy lift vessel is currently on route to its final destination - two ship yards in Brazil from which Blue Water Shipping will be arranging cargo discharge and delivery to the client. All items will eventually be installed onboard the FPSO.
