Rotterdam Offshore Group (ROG) has completed the conversion of Boskalis’ multi-purpose vessel (MPV) Ndeavor.
The vessel, built in 2013, has the length of 99m, beam of 30m, and gross tonnage of 7413 ton.
Prior to the conversion, the MPV was equipped with rock dumping equipment. This included 8 stone holds weighing 180 ton each, which had to be removed as part of the demobilization.
“The conversion was an extensive exercise which included installing new equipment including a new 200 ton knuckle boom crane, a 15 ton standalone crane, an 18-meter diameter 227 ton carousel to store the cable, a trencher, HPU’s, control centers, boat-landings and additional equipment to guide the cable,” ROG stated in its release.
After the conversion, the vessel left the yard to start operations on its first cable laying project – the Inter Array Cable Installation works on the Sandbank Offshore Windfarm.
