Dutch dredging and heavylift specialist Royal Boskalis Westminster recently transported the 385m by 60m Havfarm 1, a steel fish farm structure, from China to Norway using its  semi-submersible Boka Vanguard, the world’s largest heavy transport vessel.

The 36,000-ton fish farm is the largest cargo transported to date by the Dutch vessel which has been used to carry oil rigs and drydock cruise ships since being completed in China as Dockwise Vanguard in 2012.

This was one of the largest and most awkward structures carried to date by a semi-submersible heavylift vessel.
