Hareket gives major lift to PAX vessels

Hareket Heavy Lifting & Project Transportation has successfully transported the heaviest passenger vessels ever built in Turkey.

A Norwegian company commissioned these ships to be built in the Tersan shipyard. Havila Capella and Havila Castor are the names they were given. They are designed to be the most environmentally friendly vessels to operate along the iconic coastal route from Bergen to Kirkenes in Norway.

Each of the passenger’s vessels reached a weight of 6200 tons. In total, the ships had a length of 124 meters, a width of 22 meters, and a height of 35 meters. To efficiently transport the vessels to the floating dock, 1600 wheels attached to 200 axels of self-propelled Goldhofer PST/SL-E was used. The vessels were then towed using the THP/SL45 hydraulic modular transporters. The completion of the interior design will be finished while the vessels are already on the water.
