Neptune Marine Workboats for DBB Salvage

Neptune Marine has won an order from Danish salvage and towage company DBB Salvage for two multi-purpose workboats.

Neptune Marine will construct the boats at its facility in Aalst, the Netherlands, to its in-house EuroCarrier 2495 design.

Delivery is scheduled for June and July 2019 and the vessels are intended for use primarily on construction projects.

With our business moving from mainly heavy lift operations to focus on building projects in Scandinavia and the Baltic area we have a need for specialised workboats,” says Jesper Hald, COO at DBB Salvage A/S. “We took a close look at the market and concluded that the EuroCarrier 2495 is the type most suitable for our customer profile, and easy to incorporate into our current fleet.” The EuroCarriers’ first assignment will be assisting DBB Dredging Co. with marine excavation contracts in the Baltic, with further projects at the planning stage.”

To comply with Danish Flag State rules, Neptune will be making a series of modifications to the vessel design.

In addition, DBB has also specified its own package of additional equipment, comprised of its in-house system of twin hydraulic spudlegs for use in depths of to 12 metres, moonpools for the deployment of equipment for multi-beam surveys and USBL tracking, A-frames, special fendering, enlarged propellers to increase the bollard pull and the upgrades required to achieve tug notation.
