HeavyLift@Sea Debuts Heavy-Lift Vessel Design
Ship designer HeavyLift@Sea has presented the prototype draft for a heavy cargo transporter offering highly flexible application options. With its heavy-lift HLV1600, which can transport extremely large size partial loads and bulk goods with equal ease, the engineering company is presenting its second high-quality basic design following its draft of a jack-up service vessel.
“It can transport project loads such as parts for wind energy plants and containers just as easily as it can load grain,” HeavyLift@Sea managing director Hendrik Gröne said.
Its exceptionally large loading area with a capacity of 28,000 cubic meters, which can be split by an intermediate deck, offers optimum conditions for transporting large partial load goods such as windmill blades for offshore wind plants below deck. If need be, the ship can also transport its load with open hatches.
The heavy-lift vessel willhave two cranes, the lifting capacity of which can be selected to suit the customer’s needs. A total of 1,600 tons is possible. With its diesel engine, the ship can reach a speed of 16 knots.
It is designed with a length of 169.70 meters, a width of 28 meters and payload capacity of 22,000 tonnes. With closed hatches, it can have a maximum draught of 9 meters; with open hatches a maximum of 7.50 meters. The working deck covers an area of 3,800 square meters and a crew of 30 can be accommodated on the vessel.
