Mobilisation on-board Flintstone

Mobilisation on-board Flintstone

The three weeks before Christmas, lots of work was done in the Eemshaven, aboard stone dumping vessel Flintstone. The ship had to be prepared for a new project in Russia, where the ship had to be fitted with a modified installation to be able to dump stones at sea.

In November the repair department was working hard to produce a frame of HEB beams with a height of 700 mm. Dimensions of the frame are 13 x 8 m. In the Eemshaven, among other things, this frame is placed on the starboard side, on the outside, of the ship and welded. The frame is intended to serve as a foundation for a large band of 30 m, on which stones will be loaded and then released in the middle of the sea.

At the same time, the project became bigger every day, as more and more jobs came on board. This has resulted in working 6 days a week with about 10 people, 12 hours a day, 3 weeks. Eventually, the project was closed and we had a satisfied customer again.
