          Now, that is a large crane!

          Taklift 4 was constructed in 1981 and has a GRT of 5695, and a length of 83,2 meters. (Trying to learn something new every day!).

          You see, I got curious and found this information about the vessel : https://boskalis.com/about-us/fleet-...t-vessels.html
          Both floating sheerlegs as well as crane vessels offer cost-effective and flexible solutions for heavy lift projects. Sheerlegs are frequent visitors to ports, shipyards, offshore construction facilities and major civil projects, and self-propelled crane vessels are able to do heavy lift works offshore.

                    That is a massive crane!

                    I would expect the total amount of steel wires would be extremely expensive to replace at their intervals.

                      some weeks back the ''Pioneering Spirit'' came back from the Black Sea were she had laying a pipeline on the seabed.


                      moored again in the Rotterdam port



                      her stinger was removed and placed again on the special build barge, the ''bumblebee''

                        and after 1.5 week she sails again, to came back after a week.
                        she had removed a topside somewhere in the Norwegian part of the sea.

                        a few days later on the maasmond newsletter i saw again that the barge with the stinger went to the ''Ps'' and saw later that the stinger was placed again.

                        she is sailing back to Turkye (she came from the Black Sea) for laying a pipeline.
                        this whole trip and remove and replace the stinger just for removing a topside.

                        but i did notice something .
                        at her stern there was a carrousel type foundation. which wasn't there when she came back from the Black Sea
                        see it here at the video, btw i think this was ballasted to the max

                        http://www.captainsvoyage-forum.com/...333#post210333

                        while there must have been to big cranes for removal of the jacket from the seabed, which stil nothing is to see for them.
                        have the dropped that idea?
                        and will there be placed a big single crane, like those as on the ''thialf''?

                        anyway the next day (Thursday was a hazy day) i wanted to take images of it.
                        and ...... she was gone.
                        darn

                        but then i saw her sailing stil in the port.
                        quickly changed the containers in the hope i was on time before she would sail by.

                        i got al the time.
                        but also on Friday hazy sky
                        already a windows standard improving used her.stil nothing



                        some more improving photo sessions
