BBC delivered sophisticated heavy transport

September 2015 -  Supplying the ongoing pre-salt layer oil & gas developments offshore Brazil, BBC Chartering was once again selected as the carrier of choice to deliver an engineered transport solution from Singapore to Brazil. This concerned the transport of a 1,200 mt heavy drilling floor unit and a large living quarter module of the same weight. 

Due to the cargoes’ massive oversize and weight, an external lifting solution was required.  BBC Chartering transport engineering delivered an integrated management of the overall operation. Special focus was required with regards to weight spreading for the heavy deck cargo and on the resulting vessel stability issues. Having successfully completed voyage and discharging, the project again demonstrated BBC Chartering’s ability to prepare and perform on the safe delivery of super-heavy transports, even under restricted draft requirements. 

The deployed BBC Aquamarine is a 2012 built 14,800dwt multipurpose and heavy lift ship. She provides a maximum lifting capacity of 800mt. BBC Chartering currently operates nine vessels of this type.
