Smit Continues Danyard Heavy Lifts For Stolt Nielsen Newbuildings

Smit Maritime Contracts has completed the third visit in a series of heavy lifts required for the construction of Stolt Nielsen's series of chemical tankers building at Danyard, Frederikshaven. In January, the Smit sheerlegs Taklift 4 visited the Danish yard to lift and position two stern sections weighing 1,250 and 660 tons for the second of seven newbuildings. The Taklift 4 was equipped with a 98.4-ft. (30- m) fly-jib for this operation.

The Taklift 4 has a reported lift capacity of 1,400 tons in the fly-jib. The sheerlegs lifted tbe stern section from its location onshore and placed it onto a heavy barge. The barge was then rotated to bring the stern into the required position for the second lift into the drydock. Taklift 4's first visit to Danyard was in June 1995, when two stern sections were positioned for tbe Stolt Innovation — the first of the newbuildings. The sheerlegs' second visit occurred in August when the Stolt Innovation's accommodation block was lifted into position. During the latest visit, the Taklift 4 also performed heavy lifts at the neighboring Orskov Yard. The "launch lift" of the 560 ton hull of an LPG tanker was followed by the lift of the main engine, superstructure and funnel for the vessel Helene Sif. Taklift 4 also relocated two LPG tanks on the quay at the Orskov facility. The sheerlegs' next visit to Danyard is scheduled to take place this spring, when the superstructure of the second Stolt Nielsen newbuilding will be lifted into place. Further visits are also planned over the next three years under this contract for ongoing heavy lift assistance.
