Case Study: Vessel/ Rig: Shokland
Date: August 2015 Project duration: 8 hours
Logistics Support Services was retained by our client, Ampelmann, in order to arrange for a 108 ton gangway unit to be offloaded from the vessel, the Shokland. The vessel arrived the night prior to the operation at 23:00. Offloading commenced at 08:00 at Berth 3 at Namport. The first item to be offloaded was the 108 ton Ampelmann gangway unit, which is used in offshore operations. Time was extremely tight on this project as there was only a 5 hour window in which to complete the offload as high winds were expected during the afternoon. In addition to the gangway unit, several HPU containers as well as power pack containers were offloaded from the vessel. Namibia Stevedoring assisted throughout the project.
Although the availability of space was very short, LSS arranged for the containers and the Ampelmann gangway unit to be stored on the quayside and barricaded for security. The items are to be loaded onto an offshore supply vessel at the end of August.
The offloading project was completed ahead of time, just after 11:00. The vessel then discharged sludge and took on board some spares and provisions before sailing at 15:00. Logistics Support Services not only managed all the vessel agency functions such as the port clearance formalities and the heavy lift, but also arranged for all the freight management and customs clearing for the entire project.
