Off to Indonesia

The world’s largest semi-submersible heavy transport vessel Dockwise Vanguard has embarked on a journey to Indonesia from Rotterdam this morning carrying a special cargo.

Namely, the ship-shaped Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) Armada Intrepid has been loaded onto the semi-submersible.

The Armada Intrepid FPSO weighs approximately 60,000 tonnes (42,000 tonnes plus ballast) making it one of the heaviest cargos ever transported.

With a length of 245 meters, the cargo is the longest transported on the Vanguard to date.

The loading took place on Friday, May 8th, at the Caland canal, Port of Rotterdam.
