Multi Purpose Vessel Adhémar de Saint-Venant Launched

Jan De Nul's Adhémar de Saint-VenantAVIC shipyard in Weihai, China launched Jan De Nul Group’s new multi purpose vessel (MPV) Adhémar de Saint-Venant. The sister vessel, Daniel Bernoulli, will be launched in March 2017.

Different mission equipment is available and can be installed on the vessels to perform a variety of functions, such as subsea rock installation through an inclined fall pipe or a flexible fall pipe, subsea trenching, installation of cables and umbilicals and installation works by means of a heave compensated crane.

To safely and efficiently perform these functions the vessels are provided with Dynamic Positioning (DP2), a fully diesel-electric machinery arrangement, a comfortable accommodation for 60 persons and a SPS notation. The Adhémar de Saint-Venant has a ‘STRENGTHBOTTOM’ class notation; this allows the vessel to be beached, enabling e.g. cable installation works in very shallow waters.
