Singapore-based breakbulk, project cargo and heavy lift carrier AAL has loaded modules for a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG), destined for the Beni Suef power plant in Egypt, aboard its vessel AAL Dalian in South Korea. 

Commissioned by global logistics provider the LPL Group, this is the first in a series of cargo shipments that AAL will undertake between Asia and the Red Sea for Siemens’ Megaproject in Egypt – a project that includes the development of three 4.8 gigawatt turnkey combined power plants in Beni Suef, Burullus and New Capital.

“This is an incredibly important project for Siemens and indeed Egypt – one that will boost power generation capacity for the country by 50 percent, to 16.4 gigawatts. Accordingly, we are providing Siemens with a comprehensive and dedicated solution that involves four of our owned 31,000dwt A-Class vessels being deployed between Asia and the Red Sea,” Namir Khanbabi, Managing Director of AAL’s Tramp & Projects Division, said.

The company has launched a regular semi-liner service: ASIA – RED SEA – ASIA, tailored to the shipments for Siemens.

AAL already operates EU – ME – ASIA and GULF – ASIA semi-liner services.
