Acta Marine Takes Delivery of New Multi-Purpose Vessel
Maritiem Cluster Friesland has delivered another DP1 Multi Purpose Support vessel 3512 to Acta Marine.
Lady sponsor Mrs. E. (Litsa) Kwantes, named the Coastal Chariot of Acta Marine in Rotterdam (The Netherlands) on 20th February. The multi-purpose vessel has been custom-built and constructed within only 12months.
The Coastal Chariot will be deployed upon projects in Dredging, Geotechnical and Offshore Wind farm construction works. After the inauguration ceremony the vessel set sail towards its first Geotechnical project in France.
Coastal Chariot is the fourth unit within Acta Marine’s fleet of 40 workboats that is equipped with Dynamic Positioning. The company was the first owner/operator to apply this technology upon such smaller type workboats.
Also unique for a vessel of this power is the operating draft of only 1.8 meters, making the vessel particularly suitable for operating in ultra-shallow waters and very close to coastlines. Furthermore, Acta Marine’s DP Multicats have a track record of being the most fuel efficient DP Multicats in the market.
