Jumbo Maritime’s heavy lift vessel (HLV) “Jumbo Jubilee”, loaded three Liebherr cranes onboard before setting sail on a voyage to and around the USA powered mostly with biofuels.
he vessel required critical airdraft for some bridge passages and had to pass at ebb tide into Boston. The company chose GoodFuels’ biofuel with the aim to cut harmful emissions. The biofuel is expected to deliver 80-90% well-to-exhaust CO2-reduction versus fossil fuel equivalents.
Sailing on biofuels in US ECAs means fewer bunker calls on that side of the Atlantic saving on time and costs, a win-win for the Jumbo-SAL-Alliance team
the firm stated.
The two cranes on deck, carefully loaded and discharged in a dual lift, have been delivered to Boston and Port Hueneme in the USA, and the third dismantled crane hidden below deck shipped to Rio Haina, Dominican Republic.
All three cranes weighed approximately 400 tonnes.
