[110714.EN.SEA] Singapore's AAL Completes Massive Heavy Lift Delivery of LNG Tanks

SINGAPORE's AAL (Austral Asia Line) has delivered and discharged at the Port of San Diego, the heaviest pieces ever carried on its Pacific service, two 380-ton LNG tanks and a main engine weighing 384 tons.

The two LNG tanks measured 26 metres in length and 8.3 metres in width while the heavier main engine piece was around 12 metres long and five metres wide. 

The cargo was loaded on board AAL's A-Class vessel AAL Singapore in Masan, South Korea in mid-June. 

"We are happy to have had a chance to secure this cargo after some strong competition from other carriers," said AAL managing director Namir Khanbabi. 

"Our vessels are well suited for such heavy cargoes and our Pacific service offers customers a regular heavy lift liner service."

AAL's Pacific service connects North Asia with west coast Canada and the US by deploying modern heavy lift A-Class vessels. The AAL Singapore is one of AAL¡¦s ten 31,000 dwt A-Class vessels with combined cranes lifting capacity of 700 tonnes.
