Cable Lay Barge Atalanti in Øresund

Yesterday morning another seldom seen visitor, the 93 m x 27 m Cable Lay Barge Atalanti, was towed southward in the Sound by the tug Artemis (both ships registered in Cyprus). Their destination is Finnish Pikkala, with estimated arrival on June 13. 

The Atalanti has been specially designed for cable laying works in shallow waters, which are normally not accessible by larger cable laying vessels. The ship, which offers accomodation for 77 persons, can handle at least 4500 tons of cable on a maximum draught of 4.1 meters.
