    The floating dry dock, 165 x 35 meter in dimension, broke loose from its mooring at the southern quay of Oresund DryDocks premises in Landskrona Sweden on the 27th of November 2011. The dock drifted in an eastern direction towards bay of Lundåkra, due to the high sea water level occurring at that day it passed over the very shallow waters and stranded approximately 3 kilometres from its original position. The floating dock then came to a stop in a sensitive Natura 2000 area.

  • Super Rig: Troll "A" Gas Platform

    The Troll A platform is a condeep offshore natural gas platform in the Troll gas field off the west coast of Norway. It is the tallest structure that has ever been moved to another position, relative to the surface of the Earth, and is among the largest and most complex engineering projects in history. The platform was a televised sensation when it was towed into the North Sea in 1996, where it is now operated by Statoil. Troll A was built by Norwegian Contractors for Norske Shell, with base construction beginning in July 1991 at a cost of 4150 million NOK, or approximately US$650,000,000 at the time. The base and the deck were built separately, and were joined in 1995 while the base was partially submerged. The base is a Condeep gravity base structure built from reinforced concrete. The...

The floating dry dock, 165 x 35 meter in dimension, broke loose from its mooring at the southern quay of Oresund DryDocks premises in Landskrona Sweden on the 27th of November 2011. The dock drifted in an eastern direction towards bay of Lundåkra, due to the high sea water level occurring at that day it passed over the very shallow waters and stranded approximately 3 kilometres from its original position. The floating dock then came to a stop in a sensitive Natura 2000 area. Unconventional method Because of the very shallow water depth of 0.5 meter and the protected nature area, Koole Maritiem developed an unconventional method for re-floating. With a little help from an old friend called Archimedes, thinking out-of-the-box, actually resulted into thinking inside-the-basin. Preparations At the end of January 2012 and with the use of 200 cranemats and 175 steel beams, the Dutch company built an artificial basin with an area of approximately 28.000 m² around the dock, while at the same time three excavators were digging a 2 meter deep channel with a length of 1,8 km. When the basin was finished, a gully with a depth of 2 meter was excavated as well inside of the basin, where the dock could stay afloat. All the preparations, operated during a very cold month, were finished at the end of February. Then it was time to wake up the sleeping giant, to return home. First movement When the basin was filled with about 60 million litres of water, the dock was refloated. At that point it was repositioned with the use of winches, anchors and cranes, and pointed in the direction of the newly formed channel, just above the deep gully. Moving through the channel With an alive, floating and repositioned dock, the basin was emptied and, the water level lowered to sea level again. At this point only the weather stood in the way of returning the dock. When the wind and tidal conditions were optimal, the dock was slowly but steady moving in the direction of open sea. Returning home When the dock left the temporary channel, it was towed with the use of two tugboats and assisted by a third tugboat, back to the original location at Oresund Drydocks on the 14th of March 2012. This was a sight to be seen and a crowd of spectators were witness of this unusual transport. Operations Koole Maritiem executed these operations with the utmost precision and care, minimalizing the impact on the environment and respecting the protected nature area. The operations were finished well within the required time schedule and with the dock returned, the environment is now being restored to the original state.

An awe-inspiring engineering feat, Dubai Palm Islands is definitely the largest artificial islands on earth. These Islands are three man made islands in the form of massive palm trees connected to the beaches of Dubai. The first island is the Palm Jumeirah, Jebel Ali Palm second and the third is the Palm Deira which is the biggest of them all. This artificial archipelago located off the coastline of United Arab Emirates in Persian Gulf. Dubai islands project was commissioned by Sheikh Mohammed in an effort to maximize beachfront property. Dubai's palm tree-shaped resort island on land built from the sea will contribute 120 km of beaches. Aside from the construction of the ambitious expansion, there is also the problem of constructing a mini city, which consists of 4,500 high-end residential homes, miles of roads, luxurious hotels and many amenities that will require basic human resources including electricity, safe drinking water and many more. This enormous project will position Dubai as one of the top tourist destinations in the world. I will tell you why these islands have appeared and that they must satisfy. Dubai is an emirate that open sea about 50 km (an estimate) and the sites required for building projects are on the beach. To view course and especially to "park" in front of the yacht's property or even assembly. Well when the beach was not available, and demand persists, the beach had invented. And it appeared artificial islands. Hence so sophisticated forms of the islands: they had to provide a larger opening to the ocean. This new concept quickly caught on. 'Only a' product 'high-end, the latest wrinkle in the most creative developers metropolis. A new source of land, location of the trick of the planet Earth! The job went, the two islands were settled immediately, with mixed development, spectacular, exorbitant, and finally in Dubai's specific style ... In parallel to the World archipelago started building and other projects are still on the drawing board Nakheel, developer. But crisis compels us to winter a little ... Where is the dream of similar islands: In Lebanon, wants to build a cedar shaped islands, the symbol of this country. Russia wants to try an island / an archipelago in Black in Sochi at the 2014 Olympics, at least that is speaking through the past years. Also in Japan there are several large airports built on artificial islands. The Palm Islands are artificial peninsulas constructed of sand dredged from the bottom of the Persian Gulf by the Belgian company Jan De Nul and the Dutch company Van Oord. The sand is sprayed by the dredging ships, which are guided by DGPS, onto the required area in a process known as rain-bowing because of the arcs in the air when the sand is sprayed. The outer edge of each Palm's encircling crescent is a large rock breakwater. The breakwater of the Palm Jumeirah has over seven million tons of rock. The Palm Islands are an artificial archipelago (islands) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Major commercial and residential infrastructures will be constructed by Nakheel Properties, a property developer in The UAE. The Belgian and Dutch dredging and marine contractors, Jan De Nul and Van Oord, some of the world's specialists in land reclamation, were hired to complete construction. The islands are the Palm Jumeirah, the Palm Jebel Ali and the Palm Deira. Each settlement will be in the shape of a palm tree, topped with a crescent. The settlements will have a large number of residential, leisure and entertainment centers. The Palm Islands are located off the coast of The UAE in the Persian Gulf and will add 520 kilometers of beaches to the city of Dubai. The first two islands will comprise of approximately 100 million cubic meters of rock and sand. The Palm Deira will be composed of approximately one billion cubic meters of rock and sand. All materials will be quarried in The UAE. Among the three islands, there will be over 100 luxury hotels, exclusive residential beach side villas and apartments, marinas, water theme parks, restaurants, shopping malls, sports facilities and health spas. The creation of the Palm Jumeirah began in June 2001. Shortly after, the Palm Jebel Ali was announced and reclamation work began. The Palm Deira is planned to have a surface area of 46.35 square kilometers and was announced for development in October 2004. GC Privé ~ A world of luxury www.gcprive.com

This allows maximum pipe storage above deck and more free deck space for structural installation; thereby providing a safer and more productive working condition. The vessel is equipped with a specially-designed “piggy-back” system for the installation of carrier pipes to be simultaneously attached to the main trunk line during the lay operation. The stinger is 74 meters long connected by a hinged A-frame to the stern. The vessel is equipped with three 80T tensioners. The crane is designed to address the majority of lifting requirements including heavy lift installations, near shore lifting, and platform removal. The lift capacities of the main block (4400mt at 37 meters) and the auxiliary block (800mt at 35 meters) enable the vessel to undertake an impressive range of projects. Moreover, the 3000T fully-revolving condition increases efficiency, workability and control of heavy lift operations. Oceanic 5000′s relatively shallow draft provides access to work in shallow waters and fabrication yards. This versatility, combined with the ability to utilize both anchor and DP2 positioning systems, enable OMC the flexibility to perform the entire scope of work irrespective of water depths. The vessel propulsion system, designed to transit at 12 knots, allows her to reach locations in a swift and cost-effective manner.
