Submarine Lifting – Strength assessments

On Sunday 09th October 2011 Jumbo’s Fairpartner successfully loaded the former French submarine ‘Quessant’ bound for Malaysia, where the submarine will be displayed in a museum. Transporting the submarine from France to Malaysia was a challenging operation, because of the fragile outer skin and the weight of the submarine. In cooperation with Jumbo Shipping Saltwater Engineering completed the strength calculations for both the submarine and the hoisting cradles as well as the detailed engineering for production purposes.



Scope of work:

-strength assessment of existing submarine

-structural design- and engineering of (lifting)grillages.


Dimensions submarine:

Length: 67 m

Beam: 6 m

Mass: approx. 1650 tons
