Croatian shipbuilder Uljanik has just announced that the launching ceremony of one of the world’s largest cutter suction dredgers, Jan De Nul’s ‘Willem van Rubroeck’, will take place tomorrow, August 26.
The new CSD will be approximately 50% more powerful than the J.F.J. De Nul, currently the largest cutter suction dredger in the JDN’s fleet.
The shipyard recently reported that the cutter ladder – one of the most complex parts of the ship – was successfully installed on July 31.
More info will follow soon.
