Bridge parts to Eemshaven

After a long period of preparation, finally we loaded two barges from Balen (Belgium) to Eemshaven (The Netherlands) of bridge parts. Two fully laden barges transported components via inland waterways. To underpass certain bridges on the canals, the barges had to take in special ballast to increase draft and decrease airdraft. This solution provided an economical solution to our customer, and was tailor made and engineered for this specific transport. Again a nice project, thank you to all who made this possible again.
