Record broken on Star Istind
General cargo vessel Star Istind has become a major part of G2 Ocean’s history as it was the vessel to transport the heaviest piece of cargo in the company’s history. The vessel moved a 376 metric tons reactor from Rotterdam in the Netherlands to Houston, Texas in the United States.
The cargo was 10 metres wide, 7.76 metres deep, and 7.38 metres high. Due to the large size and weight of the cargo, two floating cranes were used to load the piece at the Port of Rotterdam. The cargo was safely discharged at the Port of Houston only a few days ago.
“This is a significant accomplishment for our team and demonstrates our commitment to providing our customers with the highest level of service and expertise,” said Scott Krantzcke, managing director of the Atlantic region at G2 Ocean.
The shipment was completed due to careful planning, coordination, and collaboration among G2 Ocean’s project cargo, operational, commercial, and technical departments.
“This project demonstrates our expertise in the transportation and logistics industry. Our vessels are versatile, and we have the knowledge and ability to handle even the most complex and challenging projects,” said Daniel Tisell, regional project cargo director.
A large team of employees was involved in the project to develop a solution that met the unique needs and requirements of G2 Ocean’s customer deugro.
“The exclusive members of the deugro Projects India, with the partnership of G2 Ocean and other stakeholders, ensured the successful delivery of this critical component. Through our partnerships and service excellence, we can pass this professionalism on to our highly valued clients,” said Gert Jensen senior vice president operations at deugro.
