Van Oord VIDEO: Christening of SRI Vessel Bravenes

The latest addition to the Van Oord fleet was introduced on Monday, May 21, at the Wilhelminakade in Rotterdam, the Dutch contracting company that specializes in dredging and land reclamation said in their latest release. 

Subsea rock installation (SRI) vessel Bravenes was christened by Ms Yvon van Oord-Barbier, the wife of CEO Pieter van Oord. The well-attended christening ceremony marked the start of a two-day event celebrating Van Oords 150th anniversary, said the company.

The Bravenes is an innovative vessel in its class because of its unique ability to install rock in three different ways. The vessel can install rock through a fallpipe inserted through the moonpool, through a fallpipe over the side, and through a tremie pipe over the side.

The latest addition is the third vessel to join Van Oord’s SRI fleet.
