Port of Rostock Liebherr Cranes Salvage to Start
The “Hafen- und Seemannsamt” (Harbour and Seamans Office) in Rostock has announced today that the ‘Hebo Lift 9’ is being mobilised in Rotterdam to lift the two Liebherr harbour cranes that have been submerged in Rostock harbour since the incident during cargo operations on the Jumbo Vision earlier this month.
The ‘Hebo Lift 9’ is a large shearlegs crane with a lift of 800t to a height of 67m. The crane is due to leave Rotterdam for Rostock tomorrow, Wednesday 19 February. The voyage is due to take 5 days.
The 200t lift ‘Baltic Lift’ floating crane from Baltic Taucherei has been on site since the incident occurred and will be used to carry out preparatory work on the two lattice masts, 50m long and weighing 35t, permitting the salvage operation to start immediately the ‘Hebo Lift 9’ arrives.
It is planned that the salvage operation will be completed by the end of February.
