Dutch Royal visit in Trondheim

Last week our home city Trondheim was honored with a royal visit by the Dutch King Willem-Alexander and Queen M´áxima. Doing most of our business in The Netherlands, we felt it naturally to pay our respect and greet the Royals with a couple of homebrewed Royal beer, the very limited edition of the Dutch Pale Ale – Trondheim 11.11.21.

Barge summer!

It’s been a busy summer for our “GREENBARGES” who’s been working in the North Sea, and also for our “RANBARGE 1” working in the Gulf of Mexico. Here’s some nice pictures showing our beautiful ladies in operation!

RANBARGE 1 – Unloading pipe laying tower in Maasvlakte, Rotterdam

Last weekend a big pipe laying tower was lifted off from the RANBARGE 1, and installed on the pipe laying vessel AMAZON in Maasvlakte, Rotterdam. The lifting operation was conducted by the world’s largest crane vessel, SLEIPNIR.

Construction of the Hising-bridge in Gothenburg, Sweden

This summer GREENBARGE 1 was chartered to assist in the building of the new bridge “Hisingsbroen” in Gothenburg. It will be an impressive bridge replacing the old “Götaälvsbron” connecting east and west of Gothenburg. Thanks to Mammoet for chartering the barge, and thanks to Gothenburg Trafic Office / Gothenburg City Development for pictures and the video. Take a look at this video, quite impressive engineering work!
