Belgium's Jan de Nul Dredging has opted for a Netherland's No Limit Shipyards 1640 crewtender for various projects in European waters - it will be constructed in such a way that it can easily be converted into a survey vessel in future. Jan de Nul Dredging already has two No Limit survey vessels and says it has been suitably impressed by No Limit's reputation for sturdy and strong vessels capable of coping with all manner of sea conditions. The new vessel will measure 16.4m in length with a width of 5.26m. It will be equipped with a Caterpillar C18 500 kilowatt engine. It is derived from the No Limit 1640, which features a characteristic tube which helps to ensure comfort and safety for passengers. No Limit is now working on the construction of a specially adapted 1640 survey vessel for a German company and the completion of five 22m tenders for the Dutch pilot services – the latter is a project in conjunction with Barkemeijer Shipyards in The Netherlands.
