This was followed by about 4 month of preparation, in which the lifting, lashing & securing plans and necessary modifications at the shipunloader were agreed by the engineers of client, carrier and the by IPSEN engaged Surveyor. During that time the construction was completed in the port of Rostock.

All the experts did a good job, so that the lifting runs smoothly and the 172 to heavy shipunloader reached its destination in North Scotland on the Isle of Skye in well condition.
