Mv Jumbo Jubilee transported two boilers and two mine hunters

In Altamira, Mexico, Mv Jumbo Jubilee loaded two boilers each weighing 577 tons destined for Jubail. These boilers are for the Sadara Integrated Chemical Complex and form part of a contract of in total of six boilers, which Jumbo is shipping. At Brest, France, two composite mine hunters of each 600 tons were loaded.

Special cradles were designed and built by Jumbo on which the 30 year old composite mine hunters were lifted onboard Mv Jumbo Jubilee. On the 10th of April 2013 both units were safely discharged in Abu Dhabi.

Composite vessels of this size are unique and it proved to be a challenge to find the right solution to ship these delicate mine hunters. Jumbo will return the mine hunters to Brest in two months time.
