Jan de Nul Launches Fernao de Magalhaes (Croatia)

On Thursday 24 June, at 18h30 the Cutter Suction dredger ‘Fernão de Magalhães’ was launched at Uljanik Brodogradiliste d.d. shipyard in Pula (Croatia).

The godmother of the ship is Ms. Marie Vyncke, daughter of Mrs. Katia De Sadeleer, niece of Jan Pieter De Nul and Dirk De Nul, directors of the company.

The ‘Fernão de Magalhães’ is the sister vessel of the ‘Zheng He’ that was launched earlier this year and the ‘Ibn Battuta’ which was delivered last month, also at the shipyard in Pula. That same day, the keel laying of the 4th and last cutter in the series of 4, the ‘Niccolò Machiavelli’ took place.
