Float off the two last out of six for Skanska at Ålesund.


At the workshop Sandholmen we have built a ”catamaran” Called Supperter 4 with cim. 12 x 4.5m, equipped with a crane that is

lowered in to the hull in order to be able to go under ex. low bridges but still be able to work with the crane.

It will be 65m long with 6m of dept 35m of the quay will be for heavy RoRo or big cranes.

In order to handle heavy cargoes both to and from the workshop and for the Wind industry and Paper Mills.. .



March 2014

With continues upgrading of Herakles and training with MCA, we are glad to

inform that we have secured a new contract with MCA working as ETV (Emergency Towing Vessel).


Why use almost 50% of the cranes capacity to lift the weight of the cranes own armsystem?

This is normally the senario with a hydraulic crane built for port service and almost the same

if to take a closer look on a normal excavator.

Please see the sketch that will be reality in the late coming summer.

A 5 years contract is agree with SCA that gives the possibility to develop this crane type.

 The base crane will be Volvo EC 700 and we all know what Volvo means in respect

of economic and service.

The crane will have a lifting capacity compared to a almost double size of crane and still

the speed of a smaller one and all that comes in respect of fuel, servioce

and purschase coasts + less ground pressure to the quay.


February 2014

After 9 &1/2 month work for Max Bögl and Sarens we successfuly positioned the

Veka barge loaded with the last of the 9 steel elements for lifting.

It is a fantastic moment to see the North and South side connected.

We tanks all involved for a very good Co-operation and hope the meet soon

for new challanges and interesting projects.

The tugs, Mentor, Eol, Kraft and the Barge Carrier 1. left for other employments.


For Tugab - Strabag we used the the two barges Carrier 1 and Carrier 4 both with spudlegs

placed aftre each other and ramps between the quay and Carrier 1 and between Carrier 1 and Carrier 4.

 This resulted that Strabag could continue with the pir for Fortum and all time have connection

with the quay for transport of personal and material. 


January 2014



We all know MultiCat is a perfect tool for most of construction sites, however with a 3 unit tool we call Panther

have all advantages that a MultiCat have, plus the advantage to be able to work on three places at same time.

This will minimize the stand by for the crew.  


We are starting to construct Jan 2014 and will be ready Autumn 2014.

Hope you find this as interesting as us, looking forward to hear from you.


 It is based on following setup:


  1. “Panther” a driving unit with a crane + aftdack area of 6 x 6m.

This unit can take 12 pax + material and we will test by having electro magnetic on the side so

we fast can connect and disconnect the two barges, (Or other barges that must be moved)

The propulsion will be two Voith aggregates, one in the front and one in the back each 340hp.

This will be extremely maneuverable and can not be compared with a “normal” tug/multicat with two standard propellers.  


 2.  Barge one. 9 x 18m with deck that can be lifted off if the barge need to be as “sand barge”

With spudlegs and a small crane.

Also ramp that is mounted from center and to one side so if the put the two barges after each othe

We have a 9 x 18m barge.


 3.  Barge two. 9 x 18m Fixed deck with a big crane + spudlegs and ramp as barge 1.

Moonpool and under ten deck office, toilett and lunchroom + workshop.


Believe this will be very effective, it will only need two persons on the driving unit for serving all from moving people,

concrete truck, material and the driving unit can be on the run all time so it will not have as normal today

a lot of stand by for crew on different units..
