Spotted: AAL Fremantle Transports Two Giant Cyclone Vessels

Singapore-based breakbulk, project cargo and heavy lift shipping operator AAL recently completed the transportation of two giant “cyclone vessels” to Petronas’ USD 27 billion RAPID project in Malaysia on behalf of freight forwarder Oceansmart Global.

Each measuring around 22 meters in length, 11 meters in width and weighing over 500 million tons, the two cyclone or “tertiary” vessels were loaded onto AAL Fremantle, one of AAL’s 19,000 dwt S-Class heavy lift vessels, in Mailiao, Taiwan.

The cyclone vessels were loaded by using AAL Fremantle’s combined 700 million-ton cranes to safely lift and stow the cargo into one of its three giant, box-shaped holds and weather deck, respectively.

The units were discharged in Tanjung Setapa ahead of their installation at Petronas’s refinery and petrochemical integrated development project (RAPID) in Pengerang, Southern Johor, Malaysia.
