Samoco – Relocation of National Heritage – Acient Wooden ‘Walen’ Boat Céphée

Samoco had just relocated and fixed a National Heritage. The Ancient wooden Walen boat was moved and restored at the Antwerp site. As both in and outside the ship is fixed and relocated to it’s new place.


Start Location: Antwerp – Jordaens Quay nearby ‘Het Steen’

Destination: Antwerp – Dry Docks Site

Weight Boat: 50 ton

Weight Framework (inside and outside structure): 40 ton

Weight Total Transport (incl. SPMT): 140 ton

Size: Length 39m x Width 5m x Height 4m


To fix the wooden ship from out- & inside, as it was in a very bad condition, they have built up an internal and external construction that protects the ship against collapsing or unfolding. Samoco used wooden shores to reinforce and support the inside of the ship and a special engineered steel supporting frame was built on the outside of the ship, because they could not transport the ship without it.

In order to make the necessary preparations and to get everything safely in place, Samoco also used a telehandler, an aerial work platform, a crane truck, a truck, a mini crane and rigging material. To lift the supporting frame with the ship in it for transport, they used a multiple cube jacking system.

Once the steel structure with ship was high enough, their SPMT could easily pick up the steel structure with the ship and the jacking systems were removed.


Preparation 3 weeks (for steel welding, drilling, coating and pre-construction)

2 weeks – delivery and construction of reinforcements on outside and inside boat

1 week for jacking up, transport, jacking down and clean-up work areas.

Samoco did an excellent job to the ship.
