Fairmaster discharges heaviest fractionator

On the 26th of June 2016, Jumbo's Fairmaster discharged a 1,911t weighing fractionator in Tanjung Setapa for the RAPID project in Malaysia. The succesful completion of this project marks a new record for Jumbo and its K-class vessels. This is the kind of cargo Jumbo's K-class vessels are made for, setting a new standard in today's heavy lift market.  

On the 26th of June 2016, Jumbo's Fairmaster discharged a 1,911t weighing fractionator in Tanjung Setapa (Malaysia) for the RAPID project in Malaysia. The succesful completion of this project marks a new record for Jumbo and its K-class vessels. This is the kind of cargo Jumbo's K-class vessels are made for, setting a new standard in today's heavy lift market.

Lift On - Lift Off
In October 2015, Toyo Engineering Corporation in Japan contracted Jumbo for 2 shipments of several fractionators from Mipo (Korea) and Nantong (China) to Tanjung Setapa in Malaysia. The first shipment was earmarked to be shipped by wide deck carriers due to the weight and dimensions of the cargo. Our K-class vessels, however, are perfectly able to transport this kind of cargo on a 'Lift on - Lift off' principle. The second shipment will be loaded in Nantong, shortly. The designated loading berth has a shallow draft, a job most suitable for the K-class. Jumbo's base philosophy plays an important role in this transport; superior lifting capacity combined with shallow draft capability.

New record in heavy lift
The cargo consists of several fractionators (Propylene, Ethylene and Gasoline fractionators) and a Quench Tower. The fractionators vary in size from 121.30 x 11.20 x 10.60m to 64.00 x 8.90 x 8.70m, weighing between 1,911 tons for the heaviest piece and 1,003mt for the lightest piece of cargo.

Toyo Engineering
Jumbo would like to thank Toyo Engineering for placing its trust and confidence in Jumbo and in our K-class vessels. We look forward to working together on the RAPID project and other projects to follow.

RAPID Project
RAPID aims at building a world-scale integrated refinery and petrochemical complex. The proposed refinery will have a capacity of 300,000 barrels per standard day and will supply naphtha and liquid petroleum gas feedstock for the RAPID petrochemical complex, as well as produce gasoline and diesel that meet European specifications.
