Jan De Nul taking delivery of twin subsea construction vessels
AVIC shipyard has launched Jan De Nul Group’s new multi-purpose vessel Adhémar de Saint-Venant.
WEIHAI, China – AVIC shipyard has launched Jan De Nul Group’s new multi-purpose vessel Adhémar de Saint-Venant. Sister vessel Daniel Bernoulli will be launched from the same yard later this month.
Both have been designed to perform a variety of functions: subsea rock installation through an inclined fall pipe or a flexible fall pipe; subsea trenching, installation of cables and umbilicals; and installation works by means of a heave compensated crane.
Other features are DP-2 dynamic positioning, a fully diesel-electric machinery arrangement, accommodation for 60 crew members, and in theAdhémar de Saint-Venant’s case, a “STRENGTHBOTTOM” class notation: this allows the vessel to be beached, enabling cable installation works in very shallow waters.
