Acta Marine’s Shoalbuster Coastal Rambler Working in Dubai

Coastal Rambler, one of Acta Marine’s shoalbusters, has been supporting the construction of Dubai’s Deira Island.

The vessel’s main duties on the Deira job are handling barges loaded with the rocks that form the basis of the artificial island structure.

“Considering the dimensions of the barges involved – up to 10,000 DWT – Coastal Rambler has justly earned the recognition of ‘workhorse’,” Acta said.

“As with all our contracts, safety played a vital role in the execution of this project,” says Acta Marine’s Rob Meijer. “The considerable experience of Coastal Rambler’s crew, having supported numerous similar projects in the region, yields real benefits on projects such as this.”

Deira Island is a group of artificial islands that are currently under construction in Dubai (UAE). It forms part of Dubai’s larger scope of land reclamation works that also include Palm Jumeirah and Palm Jebel Ali.

After the Deira Island project, Coastal Rambler headed directly to Abu Dhabi to start her next contract.
