|Arriving in the tow of SVEASUND from Wyborg, Russia, to the construction site of the new Vuosaari harbour of Helsinki in the late evening of 30.6.2007.
BOGATYR-6 is the last of a series of six self-propelled floating cranes with lifting capacity of 300 t built between 1971 and 1981 by Sevastopol Marine Plant, Ukraine. Its main dimensions are 54,7 x 25,2 x 2,04 m and displacement 2120 t.
SVEASUND (IMO 6925446) was built in 1969 and flies the flag of Denmark.
As the site offers no possibilities for decent photography and the lighting was poor, the quality of the photos of these “rare birds” requires my apologies.
