But it has not to be equipment for the building industry, for example. Some plants and machines are constructed for more filigree functions like the cultivation of mushrooms. Our project specialists lately shipped a cultivation plant for mushrooms “around the world”.
“When talking about transportation of plants and machines, a cultivation plant for mushrooms does not come to my mind – that is why it was an interesting order”, Andreas Wippern, Head of Business Development in Rotterdam, says.
Out of gauge on a containership
The shipment consisted of two components: one component was 8,7 x 3,75 x 3,35 meters tall (length, width, height) and had a weight of around 14 tons, the other had a size of 7,7 x 4,2 x 3,25 meters and a weight of 12,5 tons. “Both parts were stowed on flat racks at the customer's factory and trucked on low-loaders to the dispatching port of Antwerp. Due to the customer requirements, a packaging was not necessary”, says our project specialist.
