2nd Crane Barge 6324 launched
Last Wednesday January 9th 2013 Damen Shipyards launches, at their Chinese Nantong Yahua Shipyard, the second crane barge 6324 in row. The CBa 6324 is designed for transshipment works in open waters and will be equipped with a Liebherr CBG350 crane, a proven design and well accepted crane in the transshipment market.
The second crane barge in series, the first one is in outfitting stage in Rotterdam, will be completely outfitted at Yahua Shipyards. Both crane barges are built on speculation and a delivery time of March 2013 can be ensured for both crane barges. One barge to be delivered ex-Nantong China, one barge ex-Rotterdam.
The equipment used on board of the LRs registered barges is all of a reputable make to ensure a high quality and second hand value. For example Caterpillar generating sets, Azque pumps, DMT winches, van der Leun electrical installation and the Liebherr crane are used while the paint system has been applied by International Paint.
The Damen CBA6324 main purpose is to be used as transshipment barge but can also be used for container handling operations and salvage operations. In grab operation the crane can handle 35T@36 meter and daily production can be reached up to 30.000T, in hook operation the crane can handle 45T@36 meter. The barge has a huge free deck space and has a wooden deck equipped with container fittings all over the deck. A day and night accommodation for 12 persons including spare spaces is standard, optional propulsion units can be supplied.
