The “Ocean oil 225” is designed as deck barge, its empty gravity center is far away from the central point. Evergreen engineers used 500 ton ballast water to adjust barge’s gravity center to the suitable position.

At that time ropes from winch pull the barge from slipping. When water reached the wanted depth, ropes were break down to release the barge. Then barge went into the water smoothly by riding marine airbags and it total took 62 seconds from start to float.
