Floating transhipment in Cuxhaven

CUXHAVEN. In November, the semi-submersible ship “Rolldock Sea” took the dredging barge “Gian Lorenzo Bernini” on board at Cuxport Terminal in Cuxhaven. To facilitate this, “Rolldock Sea” flooded its ballast tanks to the point that the stern submerged so far that the loading area was below surface of the water thus allowing the “Gian Lorenzo Bernini” to float in at water level with the help of two tugs. An important prerequisite for floating manoeuvres of this type is a large draught, as is available in Cuxport Berth 4 with its draught of 15  metres.
