“Coastal Chariot” Delivered to Acta Marine (The Netherlands)
Maritiem Cluster Friesland delivered another DP1 Multi Purpose Support vessel 3512 to Acta Marine.
Lady sponsor Mrs. E. (Litsa) Kwantes, named the ‘’Coastal Chariot’’ of Acta Marine on 20th February in Rotterdam. The multi-purpose vessel has been custom-built and constructed within only 12months.
The vessel will be deployed upon projects in dredging, geotechnical and offshore wind farm construction works. After the inauguration ceremony the vessel set sail towards its first Geotechnical project in France.
This vessel is the fourth unit within Acta Marine’s fleet of 40 workboats that is equipped with Dynamic Positioning. The company was the first owner/operator to apply this technology upon such smaller type workboats.
Also unique for a vessel of this power, is the operating draft of only 1.8 meters, making the vessel particularly suitable for operating in ultra-shallow waters and very close to coastlines.
