Oman’s Port of Duqm has set a new record for heavy lift cargo operations with the recent arrival of SAL’s Heavy Lift’s MV Lone, which was carrying a total of eleven reactors for the new Duqm Refinery. One of these weighed around 1,131 tonnes and measured 34m in length, 8.7m in height and was 7.40m wide. As such it represented the heaviest cargo handling operation yet at Duqm.
In another recent operation connected with the Duqm Refinery, the port offloaded nine large LPG storage tanks. This operation took place under the agency of Khimji Ramdas Shipping.
