Today yard number 850 was successfully towed from shipyard Royal Niestern Sander to the port of Delfzijl.

This ice-strengthened multipurpose vessel of the EasyMax type, commissioned by Wagenborg and affiliated partners, with a cargo capacity of over 14.000 tonnes, measuring 149m in length and 15,90 in width, is the largest vessel ever built at a yard situated on the landside of the dikes in the North of the Netherlands. Passing the sea locks of Delfzijl, measuring 16 meters in width, was an exciting moment.

The vessel will be delivered by the yard in April 2017 when christening and name giving will also take place.
