Rotterdam Port to Welcome Black Marlin
The heavy-lift vessel Black Marlin will arrive in the Port of Rotterdam on Monday 12 August.
This semi-submersible vessel departed on Monday, 17th June Shanghai, on deck with eighteen Concordia Damen inland shipping vessel hulls and a Damen Crane Barge 6324.
The 18 hulls were constructed in China for delivery to Concordia Damen in Werkendam.
The Black Marlin will berth on the Rotterdam/Maasvlakte inland lake, after which Boskalis will submerge the Black Marlin at dolphins 90-91 on Wednesday 14 August.
The pontoons carrying the 18 hulls will then be towed to Waalhaven. The hulls will start being unloaded on 20 August; a task that will take seven working days.
Bonn en Mees will unload the hulls using three floating sheerlegs.
