Thialf at blue hour

Thialf is world’s largest deepwater construction vessel. She is capable of a tandem lift of 14,200 t (15,600 short tons). Its two cranes provide for a depth reach lowering capability as well as a heavy lift capacity to install topsides. She reaches 95 m (312 ft) above work deck for each crane.  The living quarters are equipped to accommodate 736 men. All quarters have heating and air conditioning facilities. The helicopter deck is suitable for a Boeing Chinook 234.

Balder & Hermod

Thialf is the younger and bigger version of the ‘Balder’ and the ‘Hermod’.

Today Thialf and Hermod lied side by side on ‘Landtong’ nearby Rozenburg across the 7th petrol-docks of Rotterdam. Time to shoot some ‘dockscapes’…

I got up early to catch both in what photographers call the ‘Blue hour’.
