Video: Launching of One-Of-Its-Kind Multipurpose Vessel Isaac Newton
On 7th March, the multipurpose vessel Isaac Newton was launched at the Croatian shipyard Uljanik Brodogradiliste.
The ship can be deployed on a variety of projects: installing subsea cables, trench dredging and subsea rock installation, which definitely makes it unique.
The construction of multipurpose vessels allows Jan De Nul to better meet the clients’ requests to have a project executed by one contractor or one vessel and to reduce the mobilization costs for its clients.
In cable-installation mode the vessel will be capable of transporting and laying cable in a single length with a total weight of approximately 10,000 tonnes, which is more than any other vessel currently available.
