        From a challenge, SC began to develop another activity, that of Special Cargo transportation. From 2004, this was done through a partnership with Petrobras and Tenaris Confab, in the Gas Pipeline Project (Coari / Manaus), in which SC was responsible for the fluvial transportation of the 20 ”Coated Pipelines.
        Since then, we have been improving, with rafts, equipment and specialized personnel, serving several companies in this activity.
    
    

        With the great success in the Special Cargo business, SC, with its entrepreneurial spirit, set off for another great challenge. The transport of “Project Loads”. Having its apex, today, with the river transport of the largest transformers in the world.
        In partnership with “Brasil Projects”, they won the bidding for river transport of 14 super-transformers of 400 tons each, being considered, currently, the largest in the world, already manufactured and transported in this mode.
        For the execution of this Project, SC Transportes specially designed and built, through its Shipbuilding arm, Santa Rosa Shipyard, 2 ferries, FG-I and FG-II, with a capacity of 1,500 tons each. FG-I (pictured) has floor and structure to support weight concentration of up to 100 tons per square meter and division of four internal tanks for ballasting and balancing.
