Cargo of Scale in Aberdeen Harbour

Vessel Industrial Song arrives in Aberdeen with Giant 123 tonne Suction Follower

Aberdeen Harbour recently welcomed the Industrial Song vessel to the port, where it offloaded an impressive cargo - a 123 tonne Suction Follower.

The giant Suction Follower, which is a key component in subsea mooring systems, is 29-meters long, with a diameter of nearly five meters. It was safely offloaded to the quayside using the vessel’s cranes.

The year-old cargo vessel arrived from Houston, TX, and will berth in Aberdeen before sailing to West Africa.  It has a gross tonnage of over 11,600 tonnes, and an overall length of 150 meters.
