Photo of the Week: Berard loads out VB-10,000 claws
Each week, Project Cargo Journal will be sharing one photograph, showcasing industry activity. This week’s photograph is courtesy of Berard.
Berard was at hand to handle the load out and offload for the VB-10,000 claws several times. The VB-10,000 is a heavy-lift twin-gantry catamaran with two truss space frames atop two barges. It was developed to clear debris from toppled oil drilling platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.
Berard team ensured safe transport of the claws weighing 1,300 tons, each time they go to and from each project. The team used a four-file SPMT configuration consisting of 45 axle lines to transport the high centre of gravity loads from the deck barge to a staging area.
