Global Dream Arrives in Wismar

After a nearly 50-mile tow, the Global Dream has arrived at MV Werften’s Wismar facility where it will be assembled and fitted out for Dream Cruises.

“We’re glad that the entire transport procedure – from undocking in Warnemünde to securing in the dock hall – proceeded so smoothly,” said Peter Fetten, CEO of MV Werften. “The haulage job was a milestone in the production plan. We superbly mastered this vital step today, also thanks to great project partners at our side.

Two oceangoing tugs towed the center section of the Global Dream from the Warnemünde location proceeding at a speed of about two knots (just under 2.5 mph) in the Baltic. After seven hours on the open sea, the midship section arrived at the island of Poel in the Bay of Wismar in the early morning of Nov. 23.

There four more assistance tugs joined the convoy. The passage of 15 nautical miles (17 land miles) into the Port of Wismar lasted about eight hours. The hull reached the Wismar dock hall at about 5.30 p.m. and was then secured, according to a statement. 

The entire operation, from the flooding of the Warnemünde dock to the docking in Wismar, took three days.
