Blue Water returns MENCK’s hydraulic hammer to Hamburg
In June last year, Blue Water transported a hydraulic hammer, weighing 653 tonnes and measuring more than 22 metres in height, for MENCK, from Hamburg to Rotterdam.
Now, the unit has been returned following completion of its assignment at the Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farm project in the North Sea.
Last year, the hammer was shipped on board Amasus’ coaster MV Arctic Rock. In early September this year, Blue Water were entrusted with the return transport of the hammer from Rotterdam to Hamburg.
“We were responsible for the actual sea transport, lashing and securing on board as well as unlashing, and everything was planned and executed in close cooperation with Amasus Shipping. The entire operation went smoothly, and the hammer was returned safely and on time”, says Casper Frederiksen, chartering operator Energy & Projects, Blue Water Esbjerg. Casper was the coordinator on the project transport and looks forward to assisting MENCK on future projects.
