BBC Ohio for a big lift

BBC Ohio tied up at pier 31 where a rail car was waiting with large object, likely a transformer or packaged boiler. The ship is part of the large BBC Chartering fleet of W.Bockstiegel Reederei GmbH + Co of Germany that specializes in over size and heavy cargoes.

Built in 2009 by Jiangdong shipyard in Wuhu, China, the ship measures 9618 grt and 12,708 dwt and is strengthened for heavy cargoes. It carries a pair of 150 tonne capacity cranes that can work in tandem to lift 300 tonnes.

Cranes at the ready, and hatches open, the ship is ready for work.
