Dutch marine and offshore construction firm Van Oord has launched a newbuild liquefied natural gas (LNG) powered crane vessel on Thursday in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
The Werkendam, the company’s first LNG-powered vessel, will contribute to the further modernisation of Van Oord’s fleet and mark the start of a new generation of dredging vessels.
“Energy efficiency is one of the top items on our sustainability agenda,” explained Jaap de Jong, staff director of the ship management department at Van Oord.
“To reduce our carbon footprint, we are researching the use of alternative fuels, such as LNG and biofuel. With this investment, we will be gaining experience of LNG-powered vessels and the related benefits.”
The delivery of the Werkendam and its christening are scheduled for April 2018; it will generally be deployed to Netherlands-based projects executed by subsidiary Paans Van Oord.
