Damen completes conversion work on DEME Offshore jack-up

Damen Shiprepair Dunkerque has completed a one-month conversion project on DEME Offshore's heavy lift jack-up Apollo.

The contract involved the installation of a moon pool on the main deck. This entailed creating an opening right through the centre of the vessel, from the main deck down through the engine stores and finally through the hull.

The conversion was carried out in anticipation of a wind farm installation contract awarded to DEME Offshore. Apollo is now in Scotland conducting work on the project.

This is Damen Shiprepair Dunkerque's second heavy lift jack-up project for DEME Offshore following an eight-day conversion carried out on Sea Installer in June 2018.
