Split, January 30, 2020 - Another embarkation of a mega section for MSC Cruises passenger ship which is being built in Monfalcone and Carnival Cruises passenger ship which is being built in Marghera near Venice, Italy, has been embarked on board on a large cargo barge in Brodosplit.
These are the complex hull parts of the bow, namely the mega bow section with mooring and anchorage elements for the MSC Cruises passenger ship, and the bow bulb, the most prominent bow structure for Carnival Cruises. Total weight of over 1,100 tonnes of steel, equipped with pipelines, communications, connections and anchors, power and automation passageways, hatchways and boxports.
One of the sections, the bow bulb section of the G1 mark is 23 m long, 10 m wide, 11 m high and 352 tonnes in weight, while the other bow section of the H3 mark is 33 m long, 41 m wide, 11 m high and 780 tonnes heavy.
The embarkation was carried out by horizontal transport on a barge with 4 lines of self-propelled modular high-capacity transporters (SPMT), each individually with 20 axles, which no one in Croatia has performed so far.
It was carried out by the 'Brodosplit' companies Transport Vehicles and Naval Cranes, which are specialized in this type of transport and handling of extremely heavy loads on land and at sea and these companies are confirmed as one of the greatest engineering potentials in the region.
