Jumbo’s Fairpartner Successfully Loads Former French Submarine ‘Quessant’



On Sunday 09th October 2011 Jumbo’s Fairpartner successfully loaded the former French submarine ‘Quessant’ bound for Malaysia.

There the submarine will be displayed in a museum. Transporting the submarine from France to Malaysia was a challenging operation, because of the fragile outer skin and the weight of the submarine. In cooperation with Saltwater Engineering Jumbo Shipping completed the strength calculations for both the submarine and the hoisting cradles.
