Fully loaded Fairplayer heavy lift vessel heads to Africa

Topics: , ,

The Jumbo-SAL-Alliance team has been busy in Europe fixing a variety of customer cargoes for MV Fairplayer, all of which are headed towards South Africa and Africa.

The heavy lift vessel first finished an offshore project before going directly to loading a number of general cargoes, power plant equipment below deck, and a barge on deck in Rotterdam following demobilization and switching to shipping mode, according to the Alliance.

Prior to being recently converted by Concordia Damen to the inland trailing-suction hopper dredger SAYONARA, the barge, which weighs approximately 940 tonnes, was an inland vessel.

Following the loading of the crew boat on the barge in Vlissingen, the team sailed to Cherbourg to load an engine, and at this time, the ship is sailing to St. Nazaire to load an engine and some ancillaries before proceeding to discharge ports in Benin, Nigeria, Angola, and Richards Bay, South Africa.
