The repair of the Kiel-Holtenau lock goes full speed: The two parts of the lock gate were recovered with the help of floating crane Matador 3 of Bonn & Mees. The crane came from Rotterdam and was handled by Sartori & Berger during the Kiel-Canal passage. Our stevedoring was involved in mooring and unmooring.
