2012 – Year of the Project Shipments

Port crane Gottwald was not only handling containers but also ensuring our position as the Port of the Project Shipments in North Finland during 2012. The destination of the many objects arriving both roro and lolo traffic was the mines in both North Finland and North Sweden. The weight of the most heavy objects lifted were about 130 tons and the lifts were performed as tandem lifts with our partner Havator-group. In addition there were discharged the parts for alltogeher seventeen windmills. One windmill was erected next to the Ajos port area and the rest sixteen were transported to Olhava (60 km south from Ajos) and Tervola (40 km northeast from Ajos) as a biggest special transport project in Finland. Additional reliability for the operations will be brought by two brand new Sennebogen material handling machines by Havator-group.
