Two Shipments, a Stacker, a Reclaimer, a Shiploader but only one…Fairmaster

This Summer, Jumbo was contracted by Geodis Wilson to transport a stacker, reclaimer and a shiploader for Rio Tinto’s Amrun Bauxite Project in Northern Queensland.

 This Summer, Jumbo was contracted by Geodis Wilson to transport a stacker, reclaimer and a shiploader for Rio Tinto’s Amrun Bauxite Project in Northern Queensland.

The first of two shipments was made with our Jumbo Jubilee from Port Henderson to Weipa, Australia.  The total weight shipped was 2.884t with the Reclaimer being the heaviest cargo weighing at 858ts. This was discharged onto a barge at Hey river in Weipa.

 

The second shipment was a 872t shiploader for the same project.

This time, Jumbo’s Fairmaster transported the shiploader plus additional infrastructure modules, again from Henderson to Weipa, Australia.


At the time of booking, Jumbo’s Fairmaster was the only available HLV able to meet the outreach and lifting height required to place the shiploader onto the quay.

With thanks to our project partners: Geodis, Sandvik, AMC, Civmec Construction & Engineering
