BOABARGE 35 – TRANSPORT OF AIRCRAFT CARRIER BLOCK
The Boabarge 35 was chartered by Augustea Maritime Transportation Ltd. to transport one of the blocks for the Royal Navy’s new aircraft carrier “HMS Queen Elizabeth” from the building yard in Portsmouth, UK, to the assembly yard in Rosyth, Scotland.
The block dimensions are 69.45m x 39.6m x 18.65m weighing 5 800 Mt.
The block was loaded on the barge by trailers and floated off by submerging the barge outside Rosyth Royal Dockyard. BOA personnel carried out ballasting of the barge on both locations.
