“We specialise in project cargo and heavy lift handling and logistics, providing expert services and flexible solutions at competitive prices. Over the years, we have handled numerous successful projects ranging from earth moving machinery to dredgers, from forklifts to heavy-duty cranes, from a submarine hull to locomotives and from mooring buoys to an oil refinery.”

A project handled by Noble Shipping Services at Port Qasim earlier this year is photographed in the gallery below.

  • Commodity: Machinery for Power & Textile Units
  • Total Cargo: 56 Packages / 1,084mt / 4,306cbm
  • OOG Cargo: 3 x 185mt each & 1 x 145mt
  • Port: Port Qasim (Pakistan)
  • Vessel Name: M.V. Alanis

Capt. Muhammad Inam explains; “The 12,000-tonner ‘Alanis’ is geared with 2 x 180mt hydroelectric cranes mounted on the port side and the vessel was berthed in order to facilitate the discharging of 4 heavy engines. We used special slings and spreader beams to safely discharge the over-dimensional cargo using the two cranes in tandem. With restrictions for discharging in daylight only, the operations also had to be temporarily suspended until the next day. The discharging of the light breakbulk packages continued round the clock and was smoothly completed.

Another issue was the open area available was not quite sufficient for the manoeuvring of multi-axel trailers which was further congested by the discharging and stacking of the tween deck pontoons on the shore and wharf. However, we managed to safely and successfully complete the operations.”
