In a joint effort between the Port of Moerdijk, the shipyard Neptune Marine, Cryonorm Systems and Titan LNG, the Werkendam was supplied successfully for the first time with LNG.

The 68 meter-long Werkendam, the new LNG powered vessel of Van Oord,  was built at the Neptune yard in Hardinxveld-Giessendam. The ship is fully powered by LNG, with gas oil as a back-up.

It is the first LNG-powered inland waterway crane vessel and is the start of a new generation of dredging vessels for Van Oord,” Titan LNG said in their latest release.

The installed tank capacity on the aft deck, can store enough LNG on board to sail and operate for fourteen days without having to refuel.

The crane vessel will be used mainly for the execution of Dutch projects of the subsidiary Paans Van Oord. The first Werkendam’s job will be maintenance dredging and revetment works in the Rotterdam Europahaven.
