    A few months old news, but this delivery of cranes to New York is still impressive:

    I can imagine the activity at the ballast control panel while trying to keep the vessel level while lowering the booms to get under the bridges. (Not a normal operation)

        ( the one below the red bridge)

          The second bridge appears to be a Conference Room according to the general arrangement drawing linked here:

          Have a look around in the machinery spaces on the Pugnax:

          thanks for the links Ombugge.
          so she is not a semi-submergable vessel.
          and mainly build for that 4 year project

          These two and the Big Roll vessels are pure deck cargo carriers and built for Arctic operation. But they have been used for other trade as well and will be in the future. At the rate of development in Russian Arctic and possibly mining in Greenland they will not run out of work anytime soon.
          PS> They MAY be able to submerge the deck by grounding the stern in suitable water depth first, but I'm not sure if they have been designed with that in mind.

        ''Talisman'' in the port of Rotterdam ,loaded with the new doors for the new lock at IJmuiden to the canal to Amsterdam.

              i don't know. when the wodka is in the man,there brein is in ………, well heaven knows

              maybe to remove the sea fasteners there .
              it's there a save place to do it instead of open sea at the anchoridge or busy waterway

              and in the IJmuiden seaport there issn't that much place for a wide vessel, that have to drop there anchor



              she is btw still at the maasvlakte port

              don't know of they will lift them off or float them off

                  Interesting images of an impressive vessel, by the looks of her big size.

                  I like the writing above the aft bridge windows... Safety Starts With You and Me.

                  Thank you for sharing these.

                    What a very strange looking vessel!

                    I have seen many types in my life, but this one was strange looking!

                      Though not unknown here.

                      She is the largest HLV in the world (so far) and not built for beauty.
                      She is a regular in Norway, but I'm afraid you wouldn't see her entering Trondheimsfjorden anytime soon.
                      Her record cargo so far was the P67 from China to Brasil via cape of good hope: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9qHD8xDvx4

                      placed many images of her when she was here to load hcv ''hermod'' to China for scraping

                    Thank you janihudi for sharing that link from back in time, cool to compare the giant in different colours. So happy that you shared it here, because this is a kind of ship I will NEVER see in Trondheim.
