Oxbo Transports 250 ton Buoy on 22 Lines of Goldhofer PST/SLE

At 215 feet (65.532m) long with a sphere diameter of over 38 feet (11,5824m), weighing nearly 250 US tons (226.796t) this buoy was transported using 22 lines of Goldhofer PST/SLE from it’s fabrication facility and loaded onto a barge. Due to limited support surfaces OXBO utilized the Goldhofer Transport Technology PST/SLE capabilities and operated a configuration including a 90° rotation of the lead transporter.

Following the barge loading evolution of the project the cargo was then transferred to a drydock for final deployment. OXBO navigated the buoy from a live barge onto a Puget Sound located drydock. Transfer and removal of the transport equipment was executed within just a 2-hour window.
