Scaldis accepts self-propelled DP2 crane vessel Gulliver
Royal IHC has handed over the self-propelled DP2 crane vessel Gulliver to Scaldis.
Designed by Vuyk Engineering, the 4,000-tonne vessel was built at the Hong Qiang Shipyard in China.
The heavy lift vessel with four azimuth thrusters totalling 6,450kW can be used to install and decommission offshore infrastructure, including offshore wind farms, in deep water for the oil and gas industry.
Accommodating 78 people, the 108-metre by 49-metre vessel with helipad and four working anchors and winches has a transit speed of seven knots.
Gulliver will be used for the installation of offshore wind farms and infrastructures, decommissioning and deconstruction activities for the oil and gas industry, the construction of bridge components and clearing subsea obstacles.
The international offshore contractor Scaldis is a subsidiary of DEME, Jan de Nul and Herbosch-Kiere.
