Multipurpose Vessel ‘Isaac Newton’ Launched

The multipurpose vessel Isaac Newton was launched today at the Croatian shipyard Uljanik Brodogradiliste, Jan De Nul Group announced.

The ship can be deployed on a variety of projects: installing subsea cables, trench dredging and subsea rock installation.

The construction of multipurpose vessels allows Jan De Nul to better meet the clients’ requests to have a project executed by one contractor or one vessel and to reduce the mobilization costs for its clients.
