The Sabetta project (North Russia) was Jan De Nul’s biggest logistic challenge in the last couple of years, the Luxembourg based dredging and marine construction company said in their annual report. 

The Sabetta Port is being built to transport gas stocks from Siberia to Europe and Asia with LNG tankers.

The vessels of Jan De Nul came from all over the world so as to be able to execute as much dredging work as possible within the short time frame of twelve weeks.

Eighteen vessels, sailing from among others Indonesia, Senegal and Dubai, gathered in Murmansk, the final ice-free port on the route towards Sabetta.

The vessels were divided in two groups for the actual dredging works. One group of thirteen vessels dredged the access channel up to the LNG site, including a basin to be used as future turning basin for LNG tankers.

The second group of five vessels dredged some 100 miles or 10 sailing hours further on to form a 50-km sea channel.
