PD Ports Handles Special Cargo

Friday, July 24, 2009

PD Ports (PDP) recently handled of a specialist project cargo, which sailed into Hull Container Terminal (HCT) on the Beluga Federation vessel in June.

PDP was awarded the contract by international freight forwarders, Transcar Projects Ltd, to handle the project cargo.  The cargo was intended for the BP power station at Saltend, where it will form part of the station’s cooling system.  The location of the container terminal and close proximity to the power station, all complemented PDP’s winning service offering.

The discharge of the Beluga Federation, which carried the project cargo from Kandla, India, took three days and involved the handling of four heavy lifts, two weighing in at 135 tonnes each and two at 94 tonnes each.  A further 73 cargo lifts of up to 37 tonnes each were also unloaded. 

The successful discharge of the Beluga Federation called upon the resources of the wider PD Ports Group. Using the skills and disciplines of staff from both HCT and Middlesbrough based, Teesport ensured that the whole operation went without incident or disruption to any of the terminal’s other operations.
