|Project||OIL COMBAT VESSEL DN31|
|Locatie||Scheepswerf de Schroef Sluiskill|
The rebuild of the DN 31 is a project that fits Croon like a glove. Fast, flexible and creative project management, engineering and execution are just a few of the requirements. Ultimately we fulfilled the demands of Jan de Nul.
The DN 31 is a permanent standby vessel for oil recovery in case of shipping accidents on the River Schelde or off the Belgian coast. During normal activities, the vessel is used with an underwater plough for seabed levelling in confined areas such as accesses to locks and near quay walls. The ship capsized after a collision with a tanker. It was recovered and refurbished at the De Schroef shipyard in the Netherlands.
The vessel is owned by Jan de Nul. The Jan de Nul group ranks at the top of the international dredging and marine-related industry and specialises in services for the offshore oil and gas industry, civil engineering and environmental developments.
Croon managed, engineered, integrated, installed and commissioned the following systems:
|Type of Vessel||Oil Recovery Vessel, Underwater Plough|
