77 MPs each with individual weight of 350 tons and the 77 MPs to 700 tons had to be moved with special equipment -a challenge for logistics. For this, a modified 600 ton crawler crane type Liebherr LR 1600/2 was used. TPs were transported over a distance of 400 meters over a sand bed and the crane mats supplied by us . The MPs were immediately placed on a ship from the SPMT (Self Propelled Modular Transporter).
