Video: Jack-up Hotel Rig on a Journey from Grenaa Denmark to China
In terms of area, with its length of 206.3 metres and its width of 43 meters, Audax is the largest vessel to date to have called at the port of Grenaa.
In the summer of 2021, the Port of Grenaa was visited by the huge, so-called heavy-module carrier Audax from Red Box. Audax was to load the former drilling rig, now jack-up hotel rig, Atlantic Amsterdam, and then sail via the Arctic route north of Norway and Russia towards China. Atlantic Amsterdam will now be an office and hotel platform for offshore work in China.
Theis Gisselbæk, CCO of Port of Grenaa, expresses great enthusiasm for the fact that the Port of Grenaa and partners were given the opportunity to handle this very special task which was only possible due to the significant water depth and good navigation conditions available at Grenaa. Handling such a task is a rare, special, and large operation.
For the local pilots DanPilot – Danish State Pilotage, it was a very interesting assignment as well, professionally. DanPilot gained experiences useful for future assignments in the port.

How to Ship a Helicopter on a Hapag-Lloyd Container Vessel
Slide through the photos to see the whole loading procedure. David Christopher Piel, Senior Manager Special Cargo in Hamburg, explains the procedure.
How does it work with securing the helicopter onto the container?
“The end walls of the flatrack were collapsed to create a platform. Then the workers placed bedding beams in athwart direction on the platform because the helicopter skits are wider than the width of the platform. The helicopter landed directly on this bedding and was secured and the rotors dismantled.”
Where will the helicopter be placed on the vessel to prevent damage?
“The helicopter was loaded in center position under deck….the most safe place for this sensitive cargo on board (see last photo). The cargo hold under deck has only the length of a 40’ container. Most of the time platforms are used for over length cargo and must be loaded therefore on deck. We have here no over length, but we avoid loading platforms under deck due to a higher center of gravity compared to a flatrack with upright end walls. Only in a very few situations, on special request and only if POL and POD are accepting an under deck loading/discharging of a platform, we plan it like this.”
