In early February 2016, three giant cryogenic storage tanks have been loaded onto barges in the winter port of Rozbelesy in Decin, Czech Republic.
Each of the vessels, built at the Chart facility in Decin, was loaded onto its own river barge and the 160 m long convoy will take around 10 days to reach the port of Hamburg, Germany, via the Elbe river, before further onward water transport to its final destination.
Miroslav Cerny, Business Director for Chart, said: “I am extremely proud of the team here in Decin that designs and builds the world’s largest shop-built cryogenic storage tanks. These particular units will be used for the storage of LNG for a gas fuelled power station, but our proximity to the river connects Chart Ferox to our global customer base and enables us to offer the world’s largest cryogenic storage tanks as a standard product for both LNG and air gas applications.”
