Port Manatee has handled export shipment of a nearly 500-tonne LNG heat exchanger manufactured at the Air Products production facility.
The massive unit, measuring about 15 feet in diameter and 180 feet in length, was transported in late October from the Air Products Port Manatee facility across the highway and directly onto the port’s Berth 12, where it was loaded onto a vessel by Logistec USA stevedores for shipment.
“Expert shipment of special project cargos of such dimensions proves the outstanding ability of Port Manatee and its partners to handle such large and heavy pieces,” said Betsy Benac, Chairwoman of the Manatee County Port Authority.
“Air Products has a dynamic, positive impact on Manatee County, and we are proud of our strong collaboration.”
The Manatee Country location was chosen due to its immediate proximity to Port Manatee and easy access to the berth, as well as because it removed constraints on the size of LNG heat exchangers to be shipped.
