Offshore contractor Jan de Nul has shared a couple of photos on social media to give us a glimpse into its new multipurpose vessel Adhémar de Saint-Venant.
The Adhémar de Saint-Venant vessel was launched in February from AVIC shipyard in Weihai, China.
Following the launch the vessel completed sea trials in Yellow Sea, and went to its first project, the EPCI Kriegers Flak OSS in Denmark.
The company, in cooperation with Iemants, secured the contract to construct, install, ballast and protect gravity based foundations (GBF) for the Kriegers Flak project.
Jan De Nul is in charge of the design, construction, transport and installation of the GBFs, whereas Iemants will take care of the detailed design, fabrication and transportation of the steel shafts and decks which will be placed on top of the GBFs.
The GBFs are planned to be installed offshore by the end of 2017.
The Adhémar de Saint-Venant vessel can carry out 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.
