Today's SotD is world's second largest crane vessel Saipem 7000 (IMO: 8501567, Port of Registry: Nassau, Bahama's) with a lifting capacity of 2 x 7,000 tonnes. Only Heerema's Thialf is larger with its lifting capacity of 2 x 7,100 tonnes, however the crane radius of Saipem 7000 grants a lifting capability of 14000 t at 42 meters while Thialf can only lift 14200 at 31.2 meters; for this reason, the Saipem 7000 retains the world lifting records. The Saipem 7000 is 198 metres long, has a free deck area of 9,000 sq. m. and a transit speed of 9.5 knots. The vessel is equipped with 10 azimuth thrusters for exact manoeuvring, ballast tanks with a total capacity of more than 100,000 cu. m. for lowering the vessel into its position and 2 twin Saipem 7000 model fully revolving bow mounted AMHOIST cranes. She provides accomodation for a maximum of 800 persons in 405 fully AC single or double cabins. The Saipem 7000 was previously known as the Micoperi 7000 and is currently owned by Saipem S.p.A, Italy. She was built in 1987 by Fincantieri, Italy.
The Saipem 7000 arrived this morning at the Europahaven, Rotterdam Maasvlakte.
