Van Wijngaarden Expands Its Fleet with New Damen Shoalbuster

Van Wijngaarden Marine Services B.V. is expanding its fleet with new Damen Shoalbuster 3512 – the Lingestroom.

“The 3512 combines a bollard pull of 55 tonnes with a deck area totaling 145 m²; enough space for seven 20 ft and two 10 ft containers, and an 11.3 tonnes @ 16.5 m deck crane, making it a formidable all-round workboat,” Damen said in its announcement.

Van Wijngaarden operates a modern, 15- strong fleet that delivers a wide range of support and supply services on a global basis to the maritime construction and offshore energy industries as well as port services and towage.

The 3512 is the largest model in the shoalbuster range at 35 meters and like its smaller sister-ships is designed to be a multi-purpose workboat capable of undertaking a wide variety of roles including towing, mooring, pushing, anchor handling, dredge support, supplying and other support assignments.

The naming ceremony of the Lingestroom took place yesterday in Hardinxveld-Giessendam.

This latest acquisition will bring the total number of shoalbusters in the Van Wijngaarden fleet to five including the Noordstroom, also a shoalbuster 3512, which was delivered in April 2016.
