During the early days of March, amidst a strike in Finland, CF&S’ team in Estonia was faced with the task of moving project cargo. The company received an enquiry for a reloading operation of oversized cargo in the Southern Port of Paldiski instead of the Port of Helsinki.

CF&S Estonia team adapted despite it requiring a lot of coordination on short notice, from securing a docking spot to handling all the necessary paperwork for customs and permits. The task involved moving a metal reactor, an enormous object weighing 174,500 kg and measuring 3100 x 387 x 407 cm.

The company devised a solution to transfer the reactor from the vessel Koga Ranger to a self-propelled modular transporter, using the ship’s cranes. From there, it was carefully moved onto the barge Partner, securely fastened, and then safely transported with tug Varma to the Porvoo port.

Paldiski South Harbour, the Port of Tallinn’s second cargo harbour is seeing an increase in project cargo activity recently. The facility has recently begun receiving components for the Sopi-Tootsi wind farm, one of the largest wind farm projects in the Baltics. The project will have a total of 38 wind turbines and a production capacity of 255 MW. More multipurpose vessels are expected at the facility in the coming days.
