NYK assisting with preparations for Football World Cup.

NYK are assisting with preparations to build the infrastructure required to host the 2022 Football World Cup in Doha by shipping almost 20 heavy tunnel boring machines from their International Car Operator (ICO) Terminal in Antwerp.

This heavy project cargo has been shipped over the last six months on specialized NYK Roll On / Roll Off (RORO) vessels which are ideally suited due to their main deck capacity up to maximum 6.30 meters high and ramp strength capacity up to maximum 200 tons. The shipments in total amount to a weight of nearly 2,500 tons and a volume of 9,250 cubic meters. The spectacular loading operation will require a total of 87 roll trailers to be used and further shipments will take place during November.
