'Matador 3' in First Visit to Ireland
Rotterdam based heavy lift specialists Bonn & Mees are taking their new 1,500 ton capacity floating sheerlegs Matador 3 to Dublin this month where it will lift a 470 ton linkspan into position.
The job in Dublin will be completed with the Matador 3's A-frame only, which means the 600 tonne capacity jib can stay in Rotterdam and the vessel can travel with only one tug. When the jib is required for additional lifting height (76m maximum compared to 41m for the A-frame) the sheerlegs and jib (placed on a pontoon) will sail in double tow.
Bonn & Mees expect Matador 3 to open significant new markets with its potential to be mobilised anywhere in the world.
