Jan De Nul’s Isaac Newton Heads to Its First Job

Jan De Nul Group’s newly delivered cable laying vessel Isaac Newton has set sail to Norway to pick up the cables for its first job.

The vessel, built by Croatian shipyard Uljanik Brodogradiliste, will transport and install cables in the Middle East.

Isaac Newton can transport and install over 10,000 tons of cable per single trip. The largest out of two carousels on board has a carrying capacity up to 7,400 tons.

“These unique features will enable us to install cables more efficiently in longer lengths with less offshore joints and more economically since less vessel trips will be required,” said Wouter Vermeersch, Manager Offshore Cables.

“This is already proven by the vessel’s first job, whereby an 89 km long cable and weight of 7,300 tons will be loaded, transported and installed in one single length. A second cable weighing around 1,200 tons will be taken within the same trip using the under deck carousel.”

The vessel is 138 meters long and 32 meters wide, with deadweight of 13,436 tonnes and can accommodate 75 persons.
