Arrival of 15 Damen Stan Pontoons in Rotterdam

by Hans | December 4th, 2012

Recently, the semi-submersible vessel Zhen Hua 29 arrived in Rotterdam (The Netherlands) after a seven week journey from Shanghai (China). The vessel transported 15 Stan Pontoons and a Transshipment Barge from Damen Shipyards Group.

European clients: De pontoons were discharged at the quayside of heavy lift company Mammoet, which owns two of the Damen Stan Pontoons. Seven further pontoons have already been sold to European clients and are continue their journey to their new owners. The other eight and the Transshipment Barge are destined for Damen’s stock, which is being kept for the purpose of (very) fast delivery. Negotiations have started with a number of potential customers.

Transshipment Barge: The Transshipment Barge hull will be completely finished first, including the outfitting with a Liebherr CBG 350 Crane. All pontoons in Damen’s standardised range are prepared for installing optional equipment. Pumps, winches, generator sets, navigation or lighting are easy to install, ensuring a fast delivery, even when a pontoon is to be fully equipped.

Zhen Hua 29 Chinese shipowner ZPMC executed this exceptional transport for Damen Shipyards. The 15 pontoons, measuring 41 x 13 m – 120 x 32 m, were stacked in an innovative way and shipped as one package.
