Two shiploaders to Sept Iles

In February 2015, Happy Star has successfully transported two gigantic shiploaders and more from Nansha, China, to the multi-user dock of Sept Iles, Canada. 

The cargo consisted of two shiploaders, including elevator and tripper car, and 27 conveyor galleries totaling 73 components and weighing in at 3,023 metric tons, each shiploader weighing 1,200 tons. 

BigLift Shipping and client Sandvik Canada, deployed an innovative solution to carry the shiploaders, conveyors, and components in one voyage and ensured they were unloaded in the proper sequence to optimize installation dockside.
