Uljanik: Keel Laid for Multipurpose Vessel

The keel for the construction of the vessel 507, a multipurpose vessel for different types of special works at sea, contracted in 2013 by ULJANIK Brodogradilište and Sofidra S.A. of Luxembourg, has been laid on Wednesday 27th August 2014.

With an overall length of 138 m and width of 32 m, the vessel will be equipped for the laying of cables on the sea bottom as well as for filling in the channels in which the cables have been laid.

It can also be used for the transportation of cargo on an open deck, e.g. wind turbine power plants or serve as a working platform for construction works, underwater and offshore projects.

This complex floating object will be driven by four MAN Diesel&Turbo engines, each having a power of 2.970 kW at 720 rpm (electro-propulsion), while the entirely automated engine room will have an installed power of 2 MW.
