Thanx 4 those interesting answers.@Capt Ted - I wondered if it was perhaps a combo of cranes & deck but more deck strengthening. Would that mean the thickness of the deck plates or the actual tensile strength of the steel?
Captain Ted on Jun 18, 2016 14:04 (4 years ago)
Heavy lift vessels to my knowledge or not for example,, over 100 tons it,s a heavy lift or so, it has also to do with the construction of the vessels. Decks are extra strengthened. Ballast pump capacities are much bigger , special heeling tanks are used and a few more other things.
But generally a container ship with cranes , the cranes have very seldom over 45 ton per crane, at least that was the max I had.
Captain Ted on Jun 18, 2016 14:00 (4 years ago)
Well Pata,, more signs means more safety :-),, at least some peoples in offices seem to think that way.

Strange to see cranes added after building these days, usually it's the other way around ... altho I think she looks a lot better with the gear

it looks like they are proof load testing the loading cranes on Skogafoss

Is it just me...or are those ever-present inane messages on the superstructure really necessary?
"No Smoking" "Safety First" ....Surely, by now, everyone that works in or on ships know the rules?

I find them so patronising & just so typical of a "Nanny-State" mentality.

And just so out-of-date as warnings on trucks: "Caution Air Brakes"....Gosh! Who'd have thought?

hello Matty,
There is Bold Tern (IMO 9583794) in background. The construction maintenance vessel. Skogafoss in only an containervessel with the two yellow own loading cranes, not a heavy lift.

What constitutes a heavy-lift vessel? I've been comparing this vessel with mv TRAVELLER's technical data. Not much difference in tonnage or length. I guess it's all in the name 'heavy-lift" so it must be something to do with the crane capability I'm assuming.
