PD Ports delivers for Transcar

PD Ports has delivered a specialist project cargo to Hull Container Terminal as part of its contract with international freight forwarders Transcar Projects.

The cargo reached HCT on the Beluga Federation vessel in June and is intended for the BP power station at Saltend where it will form part of its cooling system.

The discharge of the Beluga Federation, which carried the project cargo from Kandla in India, took three days and involved the handling of four heavy lifts, two weighing 135 tonnes each and two at 94 tonnes each.

A further 73 cargo lifts of up to 37 tonnes each were also unloaded.

Di Kenny, operations manager at Transcar Projects, said: “I am very encouraged to work with such a professional team and impressed by their flexible approach to ever changing demands as well as their ability to handle such specialised cargo efficiently and safely.”
