Spotted: COSCOL Da Hua Finds Room for Two Huge Cranes
In today’s spotted we bring you an image of COSCOL Heavy Lift vessel MV Da Hua being loaded with two mobile harbor cranes (MHC) at Chinese Nantong Port on June 8.
Following the loading of the two cranes, the vessel departed to Myanmar.
The company said the loading of COSCOL’s DA type I multipurpose heavy lift vessel was challenging due to an over-length and over-weight of cargo. The total weight of the cargo and the hanging beam is over 400 tons, according to the company. However, the weight capacity of the four lifting points is just 110 tons per point.
Moreover, the breadth of the two cranes exceeded the ship’s board, leading to stowage difficulties.
Built in 1998, the 14,021 dwt ship has a length of 153 meters and a width of 23.06 meters.
