Cargo transfer facilities

Our trimodal infrastructure and suprastructure delivers countless efficient handling solutions for the specific requirements of a wide range of commodities, such as bulk/break bulk cargo, heavy-lift goods or containers.

bayernhafen Nürnberg operates 8 full gantry level-luffing cranes delivering up to 40 tonnes of lifting capacity that can also be deployed in twin handling operations. Interchangeable grapples enable optimum adaptability to suit specific deployment situations. We provide the right equipment (various grapples and corresponding slings) to suit each commodity. In addition, the local handling companies provide conveyor belt systems and chutes.

  • Rail-mounted full gantry level-luffing cranes delivering lifting capacity of up to 40 t: 8
  • Heavy-lift transfer site with heavy-lift platform and hydraulic strand jack system for loads of up to 600 t: 1
  • Roll-on/roll-off facilities for loads of up to 1,250 t: 1
  • Trimodal handling facility for combined transport: 1
  • Reach stacker on the water module: 1

Heavy-lift handling

bayernhafen Nürnberg provides excellent conditions for handling goods and cargo weighing up to 1,250 tonnes. Established in 1972, the roll-on/roll-off facilities were the first of their kind at a European inland port. They enable bulky, extra-long and exceptionally heavy cargo to be loaded onto barge. The range of heavy-lift and bulk cargo includes nuclear reactor components, tanks, crane components, melting furnaces, chemical industry equipment, heavy machinery, floating dredges and yachts as well as a broad range of large-scale transformers. At the beginning of 2012, a hydraulic strand jack system for loads of up to 600 tonnes was added to the facilities. The continual availability of these crane facilities results in savings not only in terms of time, but also in terms of costs.

Equipment or structural components, whose clearance profiles in their finished state would exceed those of rail or road systems, can be assembled on a reinforced and floodlit area immediately prior to loading. This saves expensive assembly in the destination country and avoids the strain that oversized cargo transport places on road networks. For the large-scale transformer and heavy machinery construction companies based in the Nuremberg metropolitan region, this is one of the decisive factors for their commitment to the region..

The company responsible for operating and marketing the heavy-lift transfer sites is Züst & Bachmeier Project GmbH.

Inland waterway premiere: 60-metre wind turbine blades loaded onto barge

Impressive project completed in bayernhafen Passau

Verladung von 60m Windflügeln aufs Binnenschiff im bayernhafen Passau

Large wind turbine blades loaded onto barge in bayernhafen Passau Source: bayernhafen Passau / Ingo Maschauer

Passau, 07.03.2018 – The beginning of March saw a heavy-lift handling project of the super-sized kind carried out at bayernhafen Passau, with 24 wind turbine blades, each weighing in at around 17 tonnes, loaded onto barge – and, measuring in at 60 metres in length (approximately the length of an ice hockey playing field), also an inland waterway premiere.

The wind turbine blades were transported by road from Poland to Passau-Schalding. bayernhafen Passau was commissioned by the company, Transannaberg, to transfer the wind turbine blades to barge. Coordinating the loading of the blades onto barge between the port’s dedicated mobile crane and Transannaberg’s mobile crane required a high degree of precision, patience and skill.

The wind turbine blade will continue its journey down the Danube for around 1,100 kilometres to the port of Pančevo in Serbia. The transport will be carried out by the ‘Ursa Montana’ – at 191.5 metres long and 17.40 metres wide, one of the largest barge convoys in Europe. Due to its size, the ‘Ursa Montana’ is only able to dock at bayernhafen Passau in Bavaria, which emphasises the special status of this port location for heavy-lift/large-volume transport.

bayernhafen Passau, along with the ports of Aschaffenburg, Bamberg, Nuremberg, Roth and Regensburg, is a member of bayernhafen Gruppe. Due to its excellent accessibility for wide-load and high machinery components, such as transformers, and the associated handling possibilities, the bayernhafen Gruppe locations play an important role in securing the long-term commitment of plant and equipment manufacturers.

Heavy-weight catch in bayernhafen Regensburg

Mobile crane and lock gates in spectacular heavy-lift success

Spectacular heavy-lift handling in bayernhafen Regensburg A lock gate weighing an impressive 55 tonnes is loaded onto a barge by cranes operating in tandem. Image source: bayernhafen Regensburg / altrofoto Uwe Moosburger

Regensburg, 10 July 2017 – Not one but two spectacular heavy-lift successes in a short space of time in bayernhafen Regensburg: In early July, a 44-tonne mobile crane found itself at the other end of the hook. The mobile crane, which was on its way to Bulgaria, was loaded on to a barge with the aid of two port cranes. In the preceding week, it was the turn of a pair of lock gates to be moved from shore to ship: The two 15.3-metre long, 4.65-metre wide, 4.2-metre high lock gates weighing around 55 tonnes each were destined for the Cernavodă lock in Romania. The precise loading of the lock gates and the mobile crane onto the barge was carried out by two port cranes operating in tandem, i.e. two cranes moving one object together.

The lock gates were manufactured in Plauen before being transported by road to Regensburg. The journey from Regensburg to Cernavodă by inland waterway will take around ten to twelve days. Cernavodă is the start of the 65-kilometre long Danube-Black Sea Canal, which flows into the Black Sea near Constanța. The heavy lift handling was organised by the Port of Regensburg-based cargo handling specialist, DTU Donau-Transport- und Umschlaggesellschaft mbH, a joint venture of Kühne+Nagel Germany and Main- Schifffahrts-Genossenschaft MSG. Shipping was carried out by Panta Rhei Befrachtungs- und Speditions GmbH, a 65%-owned subsidiary of Kühne + Nagel Euroshipping. “Transporting heavy-lift and bulky cargo by inland waterway is much safer and much better for the environment,” says Joachim Zimmermann, Chief Executive Officer of bayernhafen Gruppe. “By contrast, it is considerably more complex and costly to transport heavy-lift cargo on the motorway.” bayernhafen Regensburg, along with the ports of Aschaffenburg, Bamberg, Nuremberg, Roth and Passau, is a member of the bayernhafen Gruppe. As a result of its excellent accessibility for wide-load and high machinery components, such as transformers, and the associated handling possibilities, the bayernhafen Gruppe locations play an important role in securing the long-term commitment of plant and equipment manufacturers to the area.

 

Another impressive catch: the so-called twin-operation procedure is used to load a 44-tonne mobile crane onto a barge in bayernhafen Regensburg. The heavy-lift handling was organised by the bayernhafen Regensburg-based cargo handling company, DTU Donau-Transport-und Umschlaggesellschaft mbH.

Pleasure boat ‘MS Utting’ transferred via bayernhafen Roth to Lake Ammersee

Pleasure boat ‘MS Utting’ transferred via bayernhafen Roth to Lake Ammersee

On Friday 7 April 2017, a river barge carrying the ‘MS Utting’ arrived in bayernhafen Roth. After travelling from a shipyard near Bonn, the pleasure boat was brought to shore in two parts – hull and upper deck – by heavy-lift mobile crane. It was then transported on Monday evening on a low loader via the A9 motorway to Lake Ammersee – due to its sheer size, a challenge for all involved.
The MS Utting is 68 metres in length, almost 10 metres wide, weighs around 400 tonnes and is worth around €5 million.

The ship will be able to carry up to 500 passengers across Lake Ammersee and can also be hired for events.

After travelling across half of Germany, the new pride of the Bavarian lake fleet finally took to the waters of Lake Ammersee on Wednesday morning.
