Our Gdansk based barge, UR5, in operation for transport of 1680t hull
Load out was performed end of June at the Karstensen Shipyard in Gdynia, using UR5. The ship, which is 80 meters long and weighs 1680 tonnes, was transported from the quay to the barge using two rows of SPMT trailers from Sarens, each with 44 axles. After loading, the ship and the trailers were secured by means of chains and hoists, before the barge was towed over to a floating dock. The ship was transferred over to the floating dock from the barge.
The operations were carried out solely by means of the barge's own pumps.
After launching from the floating dock and assembly of the deck house, it will later be towed to Karstensens workshop in Skagen, Denmark, for completion.
