The heavy cargo, multi purpose vessel ABIS Duisburg is being mobilised at the Rotterdam Offshore Group yard in the Waalhaven, Rotterdam in preparation for the upcoming project in the German Baltic Sea.
The DP2 vessel is being operated by Abis Shipping and Amasus Offshore. The Rotterdam Offshore Group together with Zwagerman Offshore Services mobilized the 7700 Sennebogen heavy lift crawler crane on board the vessel, including an ROV, accommodation and generator set. The 300 ton Sennebogen crane is especially adapted for offshore work and seafastening was done with Bureau Veritas approval.
The location was chosen by parties for its modern yard service area that extends to over 14,000 square metres with a fully equipped state-of-the-art workshop and ISPS. Alongside the jetties there are lay-by facilities for vessels up to 190 mtr and 9,5 mtr of depth, with heavy lift cranes on the premises for mobilising and de-mobilising operations. Rotterdam Offshore’s growing portfolio of business modules include de-and mobilisation and maintenance for offshore vessels.
