DEME has entered into an agreement with Norwegian shipping company Eidesvik to acquire the DP3 offshore installation vessel Viking Neptun.

The vessel currently has a turntable capable of handling 4,500 tonnes of cables below deck. DEME said it will further boost existing capacity by adding a second 7,000-tonne cable turntable on deck.

The 145-metre long Viking Neptun is also equipped with a large, unobstructed deck and a 400-tonne active heave compensated knuckle boom crane, which also makes the vessel ideal for the construction of floating wind farms.
