Unloading concrete beams from BBC Marmara, Scrabster harbour


Grahams Construction Limited

Project overview


Hugh Simpson (Contractors) Ltd unloaded 76 pre fabricated concrete beams from MV BBC Marmara at Scrabster harbour.

The vessel carried in total 76  beams which were each between 7 and 24 m long and weigh between 3.4 and 43.3 Ton.

Our approach

  • Beams were discharged with the 350T crane and loaded onto a lorry
  • One beam was lifted and transported at a time
  • Once discharged from the vessel the beam was transported to a temporary storage area.
  • Unloading in tandem lift (100 and 130T cranes)
