Ship Photos of the Day – 22 Vessel Heavy Lift and Transport

A total of 22 vessels built at several Damen shipyards were loaded aboard the heavy lift vessel Happy Star for delivery to Rotterdam later this month.

For Damen, the shipment marked the largest transportation of stock vessels ready for sale. The shipment included several already sold vessels, such as two Fast Crew Suppliers (FCS) 2610 vessels to service offshore wind farms in the North Sea.

Following the initial loud-out and departure from Shanghai, the Happy Star made calls at the Vietnamese ports of Hai Phong and Da Nang, followed by Singapore to pick up additional vessels.

“The Damen stock-vessels are ready for operation, though they can still be outfitted with client specific options,” Damen says. “Upon arrival in Europe, the vessels will receive final touch-ups and cleaning before delivery to clients or distribution to various Damen shipyards.”

About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
