Wilhelmsen Ships Service recently arranged transportation of an oil rig from Edmonton Canada, through the United States to Kuwait. The land based oil rig consisted of 3,675 cubic metres of cargo with the heaviest unit being 52 tons.

The rig was transported on behalf of our customer, Burgan Company, which specializes in well drilling, trading and maintenance.  Burgan is the leading company in Kuwait for oil well exploration, drilling and work-over.

“The challenge was crating and dispatching 45 truck-loads of cargo across 3,800 km from Canada to Houston Port, U.S. in time to connect with a heavy carrier vessel bound for Kuwait.” said Wilhelmsen Ships Service Assistant Sales Manager, Arun Ravindran.

All the cargo was delivered to Houston Port within 16 days, despite temperatures below 0 degrees Celsius and road bans due to snow and ice formation. Thereafter the cargo was kept in a holding yard until the arrival of vessel MV BBC Kusan.

On arrival in Kuwait, Wilhelmsen Ships Service also secured nomination of the vessel for husbandry services and handled vessel berthing, discharge and cargo storage in Shuwaikh Port.

Wilhelmsen Ships Service supplies Unitor marine products, technical services, ships agency services and maritime logistics.
