The Swan provides a deck space of 126.8 meters by 31.6 meters with a deck load of 16-20 tonnes/sq.m which ensures the vessel to carry heavy cargo up to 25,000 tons. She is equipped with 4 ballast pumps, electrically driven, with a total capacity of 2,800 cu.m/hr and 3 cargo pumps, also electrically driven, with a total capacity of 3,000 cu.m/hr. The Swan was built in 1977 as the Swan Arrow and was converted into her current state in 2003. She is currently operated by the Dutch based company Dockwise Shipping B.V.

The Swan will arrive later tonight with the jack-up barges Karlissa A and Karlissa B which are mainly used for salvage operations. The Swan will be located at the Calandkanaal, where she will unload the two barges.
