WW Ocean Moves Yokohama Rotor
Cargo shipping line WW Ocean has delivered the heaviest-ever Japanese shipment for a global original equipment manufacturer, moving a 275-tonne rotor from the port of Yokohama to Zeebrugge in Belgium.
The project involved transport of the power station turbine component aboard the Mark V roll-on, roll-off vessel Parsifal and required close cooperation with local stevedores, jack-up trailer operators.
“After extensive preplanning by the breakbulk project team, everything went like clockwork. Over the years, our commercial and operational team in Japan has built up a good knowledge, together with the stevedores in Yokohama,” said Per Wallmark, breakbulk project manager for WW Ocean.
Headquartered in Norway, WW Ocean is part of the Wallenius Wilhelmen group and provides global ocean cargo solutions via a fleet of more than 50 ro-ro vessels.
