Damen ships multiple hulls with Boskalis

Royal Boskalis Westminster’s heavy lift vessel Black Marlin has departed Shanghai loaded with 18 Concordia Damen hulls and a crane barge.

The inland vessel hulls and the crane barge type 6324 were manufactured in China. They are scheduled to arrive at the port of Rotterdam in mid-August.

Upon arrival, the hulls will be towed to Concordia Damen and other local yards for outfitting and the crane barge to Damen Shipyards Gorinchem.

Bert Duijzer, technical manager at Concordia Damen, said: “Sending one large vessel, with many smaller ones, is far more efficient than sending multiple small vessels. This way we are able to pass on the cost efficiency we have gained in construction to our clients in Europe, at the same time as minimising the environmental footprint of our operations.

“On this particular shipment, most of the hulls have already been purchased, though one of them will be placed on stock. In this way, this process also ensures our clients of a very fast delivery of their new vessel.”
