                  Yes, but a cheap wash, they didn't even used a foam. (Soap)
                  The water runs back to the water without taken dirt.
                  Cheap Dutchies

                  I completely missed this post,
                  that's a huge superstructure indeed, truly spectacular!

                crane accident in Rostock Germany.
                the vessel and crane was new build and placed there on the vessel, while to attempt the testlift ,somthing went wrong.
                the video started a few seconds to late

                    looking at this video, it seems that the hook broke .
                    maybe while dooing the testlift ,the hook broke in pieces .
                    now the weight felt of the crane the boom turned back to the mast

                    but sadly the video started a few seconds to late

                      Yes, it appears that the jib recoiled and flipped over backwards after something broke. An expensive failure but better during testing than a live operation. In part, this is what testing is for. Hope that the injuries were not too severe.

                    building the crane at the vessel
                    well some parts of it

                      on a dutch forum they had it also about this accident

                      the hook been delivvered.
                      it seems that it is a dutch hook



                      the first testlifting ,propably the 2000ton lift.
                      it seems that that already went wrong.
                      the locking of the hook under the bearing seems to have already collapsed at 2000 ton
                      or atleast that's were they talk about

                        short before the test lift of 6250 ton
                        it seems that a 5000ton crane must have a overload test with a factor of 1,25= 6250ton
                        Ombugge it our expert here, maybe he knowes more info about that



                        here is the 4 theet part gone

                          cause that part is on the pontoon



                          a cross section of the hook, if that redline is the fault line i don't know

                            Another video, but from a different angle:
                            https://aws1.discourse-cdn.com/busin...f8dca8daad.mp4
                            Counter ballasting kept the crane vessel level when lifting, but caused heavy list when the weight came off. (Rapid ballast system is not THAT rapid)

                              Great that you seen this video too Ombugge.
                              I had seen this one too passed weekend, but on facebook, and i can't take them to a forum.
                              Bat this shows what i thought, of what must happend at the start of the lifting , in the video when the crane collapsed.
                              No movement of the water as in waves or splashes around the barge , the hook brokes already when there became tension on the cables
