Watch the launch of the 'Tomsk'

The new-build mega-barge 'Tomsk' is on its way to Shanghai to be floated on to a semi-submersible transport ship there, bound for South Korea where the mega-barge will be loaded with its first cargo.

The transport vessel, barge and cargo will then proceed to the Russian port of De-Kastri on the Sea of Okhotsk where the laden barge will be floated off to start the 2,370 km journey to Gazprom’s Amur Gas Processing Plant construction site, 150km from Russia’s border with China.

The 111-metre Damen Stan Pontoon 11226 RD mega-barge Tomsk marks a return to Damen by Combi Lift, a leading expert in the transport of heavy lift and project cargoes world-wide, having previously taken delivery of a 19 vessel order from Damen in 2018. That order included seven 89-metre Stan Pontoons 8916SD; measuring 111.75m by 26.4m and with a deadweight of 5,700 tonnes, the Tomsk is almost twice the size of its smaller counterparts.

“It has been a challenge, but we are delighted to have delivered this latest order from Combi Lift on time and on budget,” said Remko Bouma, sales manager Damen Shipyards North West & South Europe. “We’d like to thank them for their confidence in us. The relationship between our two companies has been further strengthened as a result and we wish them safe and successful operations with the Tomsk.”

“Once again, we would like to thank Damen for the exemplary support and the great cooperation,” said Holger Hinrichs, Managing Director of Combi Lift. “Tomsk is a cutting-edge vessel which represents an important enhancement of our tugs and barges fleet.”
