HULL NUMBER 438 LAUNCHED SUCCESFULLY
Tolkamer, 10/3/2018 – This morning, yard number 483 was launched. With this, all four hulls for the ASD tugboat-design for Caspian Offshore Constructions are now in the water. Prior to the launching of this hull, there was a special transport, supported by ‘Sarens’ of this 300 ton weighing hull. This was related to the extremely high water at the beginning of the year. When the Lobith slipways where threatened to be flooded, the yard decided to continue the assemble of the hull on higher grounds. With special section lorries, the hull for yard number 438 was lowered to the slipway doors and hoisted over with a large floating crane, quite a logistic operation, but it was successful. Now all four ASD-design hulls for COC are in the water and nearing the final stages of their build & finishing.
