Balancing act around Cape of Good Hope*
During 40 days this spring, the M/V Hawk has been sailing with the floating dry-dock ADBS-1, for Promaritime from Abu Dhabi, UAE to Brest, France.
The challenging and exciting project started at the end of April, in Abu Dhabi, where the floating dry-dock measuring 180 by 37 meters, was loaded and diagonally stowed on Hawk’s deck. The impressive overhang of the dock, measuring approximately 32m on each side of Hawk, in combination with the vessel’s already sizeable beam of 55.5m resulted in an overall transport width of close to 120m!
