23.08.2016 MAKE OVER FOR ANTIGOON


The entire hull, pontoon and wheelhouse were renovated and we bought 16 electric winches to operate it. We have retained the A-frame, the backmast, the lifting blocks and the side pontoons but we placed the A-frame 1 meter higher on the deck to increase the lifting height. The pontoon still has the same dimensions of 33 by 13 meters in order to be able to perform work in the inlet dock in Kallo. Meanwhile, the first test with the new Antigoon has passed and we successfully lifted 220 tons. The maximum capacity remains 200 tons as before.

The Antigoon mainly carries out salvage and lifting works but we also use it to load and unload the side stone dumping installation of our multipurpose vessel Atlantis. Probably this will be the first job of our new Antigoon.
