Last weekend ‘WATERLAND’ and ‘WAGENBORG BARGE 9’, the largest tug and barge in the Wagenborg fleet, left Schiedam with a 1,888 tonnes topside destined for Esbjerg, Denmark. The topside is built by HSM intended for the high voltage substation of the 400 MW Horns Rev C offshore wind farm.
The barge, measuring 122 meters in length and 36,6 meters in width, was loaded by means of SPMTs. A specialized team of Wagenborg ballast engineers assisted during the load-out at the quay side of the HSM premises in Schiedam.
Upon arrival at the port of Esbjerg, ‘WATERLAND’ and ‘WAGENBORG BARGE 9’ will await further instructions from ‘Stanislav Yudin’, the heavy lifting vessel installing the topside offshore.
