Wagenborg supports the dredging activities of Van Oord in Kazakhstan and for this purpose are making modifications to several of their units, including the ice classed barge ‘Wagenborg 102’.
Barge ‘Wagenborg 102’ combined with the living quarter barge ‘Verdi’ will serve as a place to moor as well as offering accommodation in the Caspian Sea. In order to comply with Van Oord and their clients standards a helideck had to be installed on Wagenborg 102.
Early this year the helideck, arrived in Aktau Kazakhstan by means of four 40 ft. containers, after which the assembly of the helideck and construction of the helideck support could be executed at the former Keppel shipyard COMC. Last week the supporting structure and the helideck pancake have been installed on ‘Wagenborg 102’. The project will start its last phase of commissioning and is set for delivery later in April 2016.
