        if you look at this video,you see at 0,45 seconds the same arms.

        or is there also another company building this type of vessel?

        Looks like you are right, this is two of the "arms" for the Pieter Schelte.
        Interesting to note that the Nazi relation of the Heerema family is being brought up again here.
        It is not exactly new news: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...fter-Nazi.html

        yes i know,every time when it goes about the vessel,the persons life come up too.
        but it seems that people only want to see the negative things about people.

      passing the terminal this week,i noticed that the terminal was ''cloosed'' with a row of containers of 3 high.
      just a little part to see now, hangar-open-containers-open-carpark.
      something to hide???

              I used to do this for a living.

              I believe this either Statfjord B (1981) or Statfjord C (1984) during tow from the building site in Stavanger to the deck mating site at Stord.

              The heaviest Condeep was the Gullfax C at 1.5 Mill. tonnes at towout, while Troll A was the tallest. It was placed in 303 m. water depth.
              I was only involved in moving the Gullfax C out of the building dock when it was a measly 220,000 tonnes: http://www.npd.no/en/Publications/Re...rwegian-shelf/

                i had surched for it at the wijsmuller site,but did not find it for sure.
                the onlu tugs here where the tempest,husky and the salvageman,
                but nothing there about those 3 tugs,but mentoned are there smit tugs,
                also not good to see if the tempest had the fenders there onher bow.
                but i thought that statfjord c came out as best.

                    Maybe not too many notice, but a major project is ongoing in the Norwegian Sea at the moment: http://gcaptain.com/mv-solitaire-get...bsea-pipeline/
                    It should be noticeable at Westbase though??

                      Another operation that may interest some. Skidding a jackup rig hull onto a barge and setting it on the bottom in a shallow river: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XuW6FfKfJPA

                      Similar operation, but this time in Vung Tau, Vietnam: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuzHAdAd5jM
                      The biggest difference is that the rig is floated off the barge, not placed on bottom and jacked up.

                            The vessel used is the HYSY 278, which has been featured in the Heavy Lift thread earlier. (Post # 427-434)
