Padiham Transformer

Ocean Freight

Hemisphere Freight Services has recently completed the shipment of a 180-tonne transformer from Rotterdam to Preston Marina. We were only given 1 week’s notice to find a suitable coaster vessel to receive the transformer from the Hyundai Mother Vessel.

We had a 3-day tidal window to work with for the whole operation, therefore any delay in transit could have left the vessel stranded for a month, with the transformer on board! Effective project management ensured the coaster was discharged effectively.
