The Black Marlin will arrive in the Port of Rotterdam on Monday 12 August. This semi-submersible vessel has 18 inland vessel hulls on board and a crane vessel for Damen. The 18 hulls were constructed in China for delivery to Concordia Damen in Werkendam.
The Black Marlin will berth on the Rotterdam/Maasvlakte inland lake, after which Boskalis will submerge the Black Marlin at dolphins 90-91 on Wednesday 14 August. The pontoons carrying the 18 hulls will then be towed to Waalhaven.
The hulls will start being unloaded on 20 August; a task that will take seven working days. Bonn en Mees will unload the hulls using three floating sheerlegs.
