The heavy lift shipping and offshore transportation & installation contractor Jumbo Maritime has recently completed two shipments of two giant ship unloaders from Gdynia Port, Poland to Djen Djen Port in Algeria for Fagioli.

The ship unloaders are intended for unloading bulk cargo from vessels on the quayside.

The first lift and shipment was made last December 2018. The MV Fairmaster and her crew lifted the 1400t, 60 metres high ship unloader. The team then sailed through Egersund and Rotterdam before arriving in Algeria for discharging in Djen Djen.

The second shipment was made in February 2019.

The two shiploaders can now be seen on the quayside in Djen Djen port.

"Jumbo would like to thank to all the teams involved for the successful completion of both lifts and transportation," said a statement.
