The Ocean Globe vessel left Port of Venice with destination Texas - carrying a gigantic crane for iron and steel scrap.
Yesterday one of the largest project cargo ever to depart from the port of Venice has left the docks of the Multi Service terminal in Venice.
The crane was designed by Gruppo Bedeschi from Limena, specialized in the construction and design of large plants for the bricks, cement factories and port logistics industries; it is set to go to the port of Corpus Christi in Texas (USA), the sixth-ranking American port in terms of goods handling, located in the Gulf of Mexico. The order was placed by the Austrian group Voestalpine, working at a worldwide level in the steel-based technology and industrial production sector, with its iron and steel plant with related dock located in Corpus Christi.
It was an achievement for the Port of Venice that proved to be a leader in the management of special transports (Project Cargo). The special shape of its territory (no-sloping roads, no galleries and straight carriageways) and the expertise of its operators have allowed the Port of Venice to become European leader of this specific trade sector covering a wide production area that involves the entire Central Europe.
