Van Oord’s first cable-laying vessel christened
On Saturday, 7 March, the Nexus, Van Oord’s first cable-laying vessel for constructing offshore wind parks, was christened in Rotterdam.
The vessel was built by Damen Shipyards Group at its shipyard in Galati, Romania and is equipped with two 6M25C and two 8M25C MaK propulsion engines.
Van Oord will be deploying several vessels, including the specially developed offshore installation vessel Aeolus and the cable-laying vessel Nexus, for the construction of the wind parks.
We congratulate Van Oord and wish its crew a safe journey!
