Monday, June 18, 2012
At Royal Niestern Sander in Delfzijl, the
Ice-Breaking Multipurpose Support Vessel Sanaborg for Wagenborg
Offshore is being finished. Delivery is scheduled in early August.
The Sanaborg and the forthcoming Serkeborg (launched June 28 with

suitable for shallow waters, that are deployed in the Caspian Sea.
The vessels are specifically designed for logistics services to the
oil and gas in shallow water and ice. The propulsion of the IMSV is
done by two Caterpillar 3516C-TierII 2000ekW diesel generator sets,
electric two rotating propellers (Icepods) drive. The Icepods were
developed with Wärtsilä especially for this application.
