Offshore contractor Jan de Nul has taken delivery of its new multipurpose vessel ‘Daniel Bernoulli’ at the Avic Weihai Shipyard in China.
A sister vessel of the recently delivered ‘Adhémar de Saint-Venant‘, has a length of 95 meters and a beam of 22 meters.
Daniel Bernoulli will be capable to conduct subsea rock installation, subsea trenching, installation of cables and umbilicals and installation works by means of a heave compensated crane.
In the cable laying mode, the vessel can be equipped with a carousel or with cable reels along with tensioners, chute and auxiliary equipment. An A-frame and ROV trencher can be deployed from the vessel for burial of the installed cables.
The vessel, while in the subsea rock installation mode, will be able to install about 5,100 ton of rock in a single load by means of the excavator, conveyor belt and the fall pipe for accurate rock installation at up to 600 meters water depth.
The DP2 Daniel Bernoulli can accommodate up to 60 people onboard.
