Heavy Lift Terminal


When it comes to heavy lifts, Frigomar is a well-known name, since it is the company managing the only heavy lift terminal in the Port of Trieste, and one of the most important ones in the Adriatic Sea.

The Samer Group has been investing massively on the industrial port of Trieste to make that possible, from dredging the ship canal to allow for the entrance of heavy lift vessels to reinforcing the ground’s maximum load and doubling the pier, and regarding the equipment, besides gantry cranes and forklifts of 50 ton-capacity, today the terminal can count on 36 axles of Self-Propelled Modular Trailers (SPMT) that altogether can carry up to 1,500 tons, and a shore crane with 450 ton lifting capacity, the heaviest of the Adriatic Sea.

Such special equipment is matched by own infrastructures, as 20,000 square meters of warehouses, including bonded, reefer and LME-authorized ones, 50,000 square meters of open areas, 360 meter own pier and the rail connection directly on the pier.

At Frigomar, highly-skilled professionals can provide customers with an all-encompassing service, since no operations are outsourced, from lifting out-of-gauge engines on board with the terminal’s crane or shifting port cranes via SPMTs from the storage area to the loading point, to simply acting as a stevedoring company by lashing/unlashing, welding, cutting, grinding, or securing cargoes.

In case goods are yet to be assembled and are going to be outweighed and outsized, individual components will reach the terminal to complete their construction on site, even by the customers’ own staff if required. Later, assembled cargoes can also be packed, and obviously stored and loaded.

Of course through some sister companies, Frigomar’s customers can also get freights booked and ships chartered, but neutrality about their projects is always guaranteed.
