Scaldis heavy lift vessels joining forces


The two heavy lift vessels of Scaldis, Gulliver and Rambiz, arrived at the horizon near Scheveningen beginning of June.

Upon arrival an extensive training and real scale testing and measuring program started for an upcoming unique civil-marine project in shallow but challenging waters and as a result of many engineering hours and a 3D computer simulation.

The most spectacular part of this trial was the a Double Duo Lift, a simultaneous and synchronised 5000t lift with Rambiz and Gulliver. For this lift we created a copy of the actual lifts to be performed, by placing a test load pontoon on the transport barge, combined with a unique and safe rigging design.

Scaldis PM, W. Zuidscherwoude says: ‘This test lift has been in the making for over 1,5years. To see it all come together with a perfectly executed lift is a statement of the competence and capabilities of Rambiz, Gulliver and their respective crews’

Scaldis would like to thank everyone who made this possible and especially the Client for the good cooperation, which is essential for this successful project.
