December 17 - Conquest Offshore - a Dutch joint venture between Concordia Offshore BV and Zwagerman Offshore Services BV - has used its Conquest MB I, 1,500 tonne offshore heavy lift crane barge to unload six ship hulls at Flushing, the Netherlands.

The vessel hulls were built in China and loaded onto the barge 'NP 328'. The cargo was towed to the Netherlands by Holland Offshore's new build tugboat, 'Dutch Blue'.
