BigLift carried 18 Liquid Propane Gas (LPG) tanks in three shipments from Terneuzen, the Netherlands to St Croix, Virgin Islands.
Happy Ranger made two consecutive voyages with eight tanks each time and Transporter carried the two remaining pieces.
Some creative solutions were necessary to stow these big tanks. They were quite impressive at about 315 mt, with a length of 53 m and being nearly 7 m in diameter. Therefore, Happy Ranger crossed the Atlantic Ocean twice with two tanks protruding slightly over her portside. It goes without saying that BigLift engineering made sure that the tanks were sufficiently sea fastened and that all the cargo safely reached St Croix.
