The delivery ceremony of yard 507 Isaac Newton, a sophisticated multipurpose vessel built by Uljanik shipyard for the Jan De Nul Group (Sofidra S.A.), was held in Uljanik on 27th November 2015.
The vessel can be deployed on a variety of projects: installing subsea cables, trench dredging and subsea rock installation.
The Isaac Newton has a length of 138 m and width of 32 m, deadweight of 13,436 tonnes and may also be used for the transport of cargo on the open deck, for example wind turbine, or may be used as a working platform for construction tasks, undersea or offshore projects.

In cable-installation mode the vessel will be capable of transporting and laying cable in a single length with a total weight of approximately 10,000 tonnes, which is more than any other vessel currently available.
