Cometto’s MSPE EVO3 Moves Australian Patrol Vessel Sections – Video
The Australian Offshore Patrol Vessel, Arafura is being built by Luerssen Australia and partner ASC at the Osborne Naval Shipyard in Adelaide, South Australia. Earlier this year the two sections of the vessel were brought together, transported by SPMTs from the Cometto MSPE range, and welded to form a complete hull. In what was the largest block move in the history of the Osborne Naval Shipyard and a considerable engineering feat, Australian Naval Infrastructure’s (ANI) operations team manoeuvred the two mega-blocks together, with only millimetres between them.
When it comes to keep a self-propelled combination as compact as possible but to load thousands of tons on it, Cometto have provided a perfectly suitable solution with its MSPE EVO3 product line. This series offers remarkable 70 tons of payload capacity per axle line making it by far the strongest value on the market!
