RollDock Star came to Turkey for a jack-up barge loading operation. The RollDock vessel arrived in Istanbul for the float-in operation to load a jack-up barge which weighs 934 tons.
The operation was quite challenging, but ran smootly thanks to the assistence of the RollDock Engineering Group. After the RollDock vessel arrived, it was navigated to the anchorage area and started submerging.
While it was submerging, Bati Group positioned the barge for the float-in operation and they managed to float in the barge within the estimated time frame.
The lashing of the barge took another six hours, securing everything in position and preparing the vessel for sailing. The opration lasted one day, including the lashing time of the RollDock vessel. In the end, the RollDock Star started its journey to Calais, France.
