Semi-submersible vessel details
Semi-Submersible vessel (Semi-submersible ships) is dedicated to the overall large equipment can not be divided, with a focus on specialty large transport ships, these large goods, including non-powered ships, locomotives, large prefabricated bridges, oil drilling platforms. The construction of semi-submersible ship technology is very complex, only the Netherlands has had such a monopoly of the ship and the international market. China is second with transport oversized cargo “semi-submersible vessel”countries. At present, only more than 10 ships around the world similar to the vessels, which all of China’s COSCO Group, “Tai-mouth ” and its sister vessel “Tai Shing mouth ” is one of the most advanced design, features the most complete, most useful operations on behalf of the special The most advanced level of the ship.
Semi-submersible semi-submersible vessel, also known as the mother ship, which by itself is the adjustment of ballast water, the cargo deck into the water, so that the carriage of specific goods to be (such as barges, yachts, ships, drilling platforms, etc.) float from the specified location Semi-Submersiblevessel loaded into the deck of the goods to the designated location.
Semi-submersible vessel operating principle is very similar to the submarine, the difference is not the submarine into the water to all, while the semi-submersible vessel to submerge half, this is the origin of the name semi-submersible vessel.
In handling, it adopted its own ballast water adjustment, the loading deck into the water, so that the highest point of loading the deck, below the specific goods (such as barges, yachts, ships, drilling platforms, etc.) of the maximum draft. These goods can use its own power, or drag and drop directly to the Semi-Submersible floating deck above the cargo ship. At this time and through the semi-submersible vessel discharged ballast water, hull floating, so that goods can be loaded directly on the deck and lashing requirements to connect the goods to the specified location.
