Van den Herik Sliedrecht, a Dutch company involved in hydraulic and marine engineering industry, last week christened its newbuild crane vessel ‘Prins 6’ during a ceremony in its own harbor in Sliedrecht.

Hanneke Nobel, the wife of the president of the foundation that manages the Van den Herik shares, performed the ceremony.

The Prins 6, built by Scheepswerf Poppen, is a 65m long diesel electric crane vessel designed and built to minimize CO2 emissions.

The vessel has a hopper and will be used for dredging and rock dumping, Van den Herik said in its announcement.

The Prins 6 has an electric PLM 1217E crane of PLM Cranes. The crane regenerates energy when lowering the load, which perfectly suits within the hybrid character of the vessel.
