Svanen

IMO : 9007453

Build : 1991 by Astana, Ferrol in Spain, nr??

She looks like the basic skeleton of a hugh dinosaur, ready to snap away at it’s intended lunch but she really isn’t that hungry. She is known to have scared small children and not so small dogs but that is basically the result of her looks, not of her deeds. The Svanen is used to lift hugh heavy things in the middle of the sea, for instance constructing the windmill-parks that are sprouting up all over the world. And although she looks like a scaffolding project gone crazy she can lift 8700 tons. Very useful and very ugly!

    Svanen, the swan, was built for lifting bridge sections when they built the great belt bridge in Denmark. She was build for this project alone and ment to be chraped after the job was done. Aperantly this did not happen, she was used in the us for the same purpose, before beaing riged for windmill lifting.
