    Impressive?? I'll give you impressive. This is the worlds biggest Crane Vessel, SSCV "Thialf", 2 x 7,100 m.t. revolving cranes for a combined capacity of 14,200 m.t.:

    But it does NOT hold the world record for offshore lifting. That still belong to Saipem 7000 at 12,150 m.t..

    Here is Saipem 7000, ex Micoperi 7000:

    More about Crane Vessels on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crane_vessel
    But they have forgotten about Chinese Crane Vessels and Barges, of which there are several, the biggest able to lift 5,000 m.t.

            I have been posting pics of Crane Vessels and heavy lifting on another thread, incl. SSCV Thialf a couple of days ago.

            Since we now have a special thread for such things, maybe those should be moved here to stay more in line on the Supply Vessel thread?

            The same goes for other posts I have made on that thread, which doesn't fit the title, like pictures of rigs, towage operations and offshore fields etc.

            Maybe collect all Offshore Oil & Gas related posts under one group, or thread?

            The Administrator may decide.

                (I have copied some of the posts from the supply ship thread to this new thread, so now, we have a dedicated place for this monsters of the seas).


                For that crane vessel THIALF: she is ginormous.... the scale of her, the size, the immense technology that has been stretched to complete her is quite astonishing.

                Makes me wonder, whether we will see something bigger in the future or whether this is as far as technology and economics will ever push it.

                  Heerema just cancelled plans to build the next generation SSCV with even bigger lifting capacity and able to work in the Arctic. When the market picks up again they will probably dust off that project. (Sorry, I don't know details)

                  As said earlier, the Offshore Oil & Gas related posts starts to be quite numerous and may deserve it's own group, or at least one or more thread to separate Supply Vessels, which is already a wide spectrum, from other types of vessels, rigs and installations used in the offshore industry, incl. Marine Operations and other items presently all thrown together.
                  I know, I'm the biggest sinner here.

                        Is the cocpit on GPS Atlas or a tug behind her? It looks like she is self propelled.

                        Thank you for the pictures.

                          Here is Tak Lift 6's bigger sister: Asian Hercules, 1600 m.t SWL:




                          Heading towards McDermott's Fabrication yard at Batam:

                          I don't know what she was going to lift as I was not involved. It couldn't be this big jacket, that is for sure.
                          The two big tall Mobile Cranes seen here can lift 500 t. each.

                          Her she is, lifting something. (I was too far away to see what):

                            Another kind of Crane Barge seen at Batam a few days ago:

                            This is McDermott's Derrick/Lay barge "KP 1" I believe.

                              the cocpit is on the cranebarge,i don't know if she is self propelled,but every cranebarge has a engine for the crane,the most smaller cranes that i see in the port are towed
