Lichterhaven, IJmuiden, The Netherlands

Located outside the ship lock complex of IJmuiden, directly in the North Sea, the Lichterhaven facility provides a save mooring location for very large bulk carriers. Vessels being mostly ore carrier for the adjacent Tata Steel facility, the cargo is unloaded into smaller barges to be transported to their final Destination.

Together with De Klerk contracting company, all monopiles have been upgraded to handle larger loads due to increased vessel size. QuayQuip Technical Solutions supplied new fendering, consist of the supply of 2 new QCN2000 rubber cone fenders, 2 new steel fender panels and related accessories. Delivered pre-mounted, ready to use system, enabled the client to achieve a superefficient installation, meeting the pressurised planning squeeze between the last unloaded vessel and the arrival of the next laden vessel.
