Today the m.v. Tiberborg left the port of Eemshaven and set direction to Houston with a full load of project cargo. The m.v. Tiberborg, with a cargo capacity of 19.500 tonnes and measuring 172,28m in length and 21,49 m in width, carries 253 empty reels, 8 full reels, 5 reel cars, 5 deckhands and 2x 20 feet containers.
Earlier this year these reels were discharged at the Wagenborg terminal in Eemshaven to be transported to their final destination at the ‘Schoonebeker oilfield’. After months of loading out the pipes on these reels with several lowloaders and trailers, the empty reels are now being shipped back to Houston.
With this shipment again a typical Wagenborg project comes to an end. A project consisting of shipping, storage & transhipment and special transport by road is exemplary for the integrated logistic solutions Royal Wagenborg offers.
