Exceptional transport of a wheelhouse to Rotterdam (NL)

Exceptional transport of a wheelhouse to Rotterdam (NL)

Damen Shipyards Gorinchem (NL) asked Wim Bosman to transporta wheelhouse on very short notice. The wheelhouse (length 5.0 metres x width 3,68 metres x height 3.71 metres, weight 6,8 tons) was produced within a few days on the yard of Damen Shipyards Gorinchem in Galati, Romania. A wheelhouse is a cockpit on a ship from which a ship is navigated.

Exceptional transport

To transport the wheelhouse quickly to Rotterdam, Damen Shipyards Gorinchem had to find a carrier. “The choice for a carrier was made quickly, we always prefer to work with Wim Bosman. This transport was categorized as ‘exceptional transport’ because of the special dimensions and the weight. Extra measures were required such as: special vehicles and specific permits. Fortunately, Wim Bosman has the necessary experience which is needed to take care of this transport quickly. Thanks to the efforts of Marcel Duvigneau, freight forwarder, the wheelhouse reached its destination in Rotterdam within five days.  One could directly start assembling the wheelhouse on the ship", says Nicarda Didden of Damen Shipyards Gorinchem.
