Heading to Aegean; Saipem 7000 passed through the Strait of Istanbul safely
31 July 2015 - 05:56

On the way from Burgas, Bulgaria; to Italy; the crane vessel Saipem 7000 passed  through the Strait of Istanbul yesterday. 
Tugs from the Turkish Coastal safety Administration escorted the giant crane vessel during the passage which ended at 18:30 in the evening. 
There are currently two suspension bridges at the Strait of Istanbul that limit the maximum air draft of passing vessels; 54 and 64 meters respectively from South to North. The Saipem 7000 will take extra care while passing under these bridges by balancing the air draft by increasing the water draft. 
Saipem 7000 is the world's second largest crane vessel, after the Thialf. The crane radius of the Saipem 7000 grants a lifting capability of 14,000 tonnes at 42 meters while the Thialf can lift 14,200 tonnes at 31.2 meters.
