Bisso Marine Lifts Reactor Vessel

Tuesday, March 21, 2000
Bisso Marine Co., Inc. recently lifted an 850-ton reactor vessel from the deck of Storman Asia at the Nashville Ave. Wharf in New Orleans. Originally, the off-loading plans falled for the ship's own cranes to remove the vessel, but a problem developed with the lifting gear, and the cranes were unable to provide the lift capability. Bisso's derrick barges Cappy Bisso and Lili Bisso were brought to the scene, and safely lifted the reactor vessel from the ship, and placed it on a 260 x 72 ft. barge outfitted with heavy lift dollies. Rigging for the special lift was engineered and supplied by Versabar, Inc.
