Ferry Loading and Shipment of two catamarans

Each Catamaran had a net weight of 200MT, and measured 55m in length, 16m in width and 16m in height. We arranged a temporary steaming license as well as ocean freight including loading and discharging. It took approximately two months of preparation work to smoothly coordinate the operation with the tug owner to keep the ferries in position, the divers in the water, and the crane operator on the ship. The most critical part of this lifting operation was the strong undercurrent, a window of time during daylight of approximately 45 minutes slack-tide where we could lower down the slings into the water and position the slings under the hull of the ferries.
