Gulliver and Rambiz carry out Double Duo Lift Rehearsal

20210628 scaldis gulliver rambiz rehearsal 1

Two Scaldis heavy lift vessels, Rambiz and Gulliver have arrived the Dutch coast near Scheveningen earlier this month to carry out extensive training, real scale testing and measuring program for a future civil marine in shallow, but challenging waters.

The trial took place after many hours of precise engineering and 3D simulation and the focal of the trial was the Double Duo Lift, a lifting method developed by Scaldis. The lift will be a simultaneous and synchronised 5000-tonne with Rambiz and Gulliver.

Trial based on actual lift

For this lift, Scaldis created a copy of the actual lifts to be performed, by placing a test load pontoon on the transport barge, together with a unique and safe rigging design.

This test lift has been in the making for over 18 months. To see it all come together with a perfectly executed lift is a statement of the competence and capabilities of Rambiz, Gulliver and their respective crews.

The Belgian salvage specialists Scaldis has initially developed this “Double Duo Lift method” to salvage a Norwegian frigate KNM Helge Ingstad that has become partially submerged following a collision with an oil tanker Sola TS near Bergen, off the coast of Norway in November 2018.

Rambiz, equipped with two cranes and a total lifting capacity of 3,300 metric tons, and the new heavy lift vessel Gulliver, also with two cranes and a total lifting capacity of 4,000 metric tons is able to create a total combined total lifting capacity of 7,300 metric tons.

It will really be an exciting during the actual lift and I hope that Scaldis will make a good video to show the process of the lifting operation.
