Donjon lifts cruise ship module
Donjon Marine, Co., Inc. recently carried out a heavy lift operation on Grand Bahama Island for Grand Bahama Shipyard Limited.
The Donjon tug Mary Alice and derrick-barge Chesapeake 1000 assisted the shipyard with the lifting, transport and placement of a 375 ton prefabricated module for the Holland America Lines cruise ship Rotterdam.
Donjon and its subcontractor, PCCI (Alexandria, VA), worked with shipyard engineers to design a custom lifting frame and rigging arrangement to reduce module deflection during the operation.
Project Manager and Donjon VP Steve Newes said, "This job involved both technical and scheduling challenges. We are quite proud of the service provided."
