After A2Sea bought the Jumping Jack, incl. the M1200, from Mammoet the crane collapsed. Afterwards they started directly with the repair of the crane.
This was done in the harbor of Rotterdam where the M1200 was rolled of the Sea Jack with SPMT's.
Boekestijn was called in to lift the superlift and mainboom with their LTM 1300/1 and LTM 1500. This time the crane was fitted with the heavy mainboom!
After the hookblock was reeved and some tests were conducted the crane could be testloaded with 450t in the hook.
A complete slew had to be made with the 450t.
When the TC 3200 from Sarens was lifted from the Sea Jack the M1200 could be placed back. Once again this would be done with SPMT's from Wagenborg. Because Wagenborg didn't have enough free SPMT's ALE was called in with additional axle lines.
In total a number of 64 axle lines had to be used to move the ±1200t heavy crane.
The load-out could almost begin, the wait was for the tide to come in.
It stays impressive how such a heavy load can be moved with just some presses at buttons.
The next day the M1200 was on its position on Sea Jack and the SPMT's were all taken of.
I want to thank all the people once again for the oppertunity to see the entire path of repair..
