Yet Another Addition to the DCS’ Fleet

DCSThe blue and orange of maritime service provider Delta Coastal are slowly but surely becoming trusted colours on the North Sea. The young company recently expanded its fleet once again with two new vessels, bringing the fleet total to six.

The latest additions are the DCS Verifier, an aluminium tender/survey vessel and a multicat, the DCS Explorer. The Verifier is a fast and robust vessel that was originally built by Damen for the support of military missions. The vessel (21.20m long and 5.80m wide) has 28m2 of deck surface. Her lay-out provides ample comfort for crew and passengers alike. This makes it highly suitable for the dredging industry, as well as for offshore oil & gas and wind projects. Because of its shallow 1.85m draft, the DCS Explorer multicat can be flexibly deplored throughout the maritime industry. She boasts provisions for anchor handling, as well as pushing and towing operations. The vessel houses two 80t cranes and three winches. All the other equipment and the hydraulic A-frame furthermore make the vessel highly suitable for ploughing.

DCS now has a total of six vessels in service. Alongside the mentioned vessels, these are the DCS Warrior, DCS Discovery, DCS Eagle, and DCS Merlin. With the expansion of its fleet, Delta Coastal Services can further optimise its crew tendering, stores delivery, survey and dredging support, and anchor handling service portfolio. Since founding, the company continues to take the maritime industry by storm. The fleet undoubtedly plays an important role in this. This also holds true for know-how, experience, and a flexible and solution driven attitude. Furthermore, Delta Coastal Services’ settlement in the Vlissingen port area provides an excellent base of operation for the North Sea.

Many of the vessels are continuously at sea for various projects. One of these projects takes place from Eemshaven in Groningen and entails the deployment of the Cobra powerline that TenneT is currently laying between Denmark and the Netherlands. A little closer to home and after the summer, the company will provide its services to Boskalis for the construction of offshore windfarms Borssele I and II.
