The 300 tons Vacuum Column shipped from Ortona on April 27 has finally arrived to its destination in Mozyr, Belarus.

The column travelled by vessel from Ortona to Kherson, Ukraine, where it was transhipped to the barge.

The operation was long and very delicate, because due to high level of water, very atypical for this period, the quay was completely under water. In order to pump out the exceeding water, a double dam was created and after the mooring and transhipping phases, the barge sailed on the Dnieper and Pripyat’ rivers.

It arrived to the Mozyr Jetty, where the cargo was rolled out of the barge by modular trailers and delivered to the final destination.
