Damen Multi Cat 3213 'Cronus' delivered to Van Oord ahead of schedule

The second Damen Multi Cat (MuC) 3213 has been delivered to dredging major Van Oord at Damen Shipyard’s HQ in Gorinchem (The Netherlands). In the presence of both the Van Oord and Damen families, the MuC 3213 was named Cronus by Ms Kora Huijser-Eland. Cronus and her sister vessel Oceanus (delivered Dec 2011) are the first of their type and the two biggest Multi Cats ever built worldwide. The workboat was built by Damen Shipyards Hardinxveld (The Netherlands) and delivered two months before the contractual delivery date.

The 'Cronus' workboat made a trial-speed of 10.8 knots and demonstrated a 28.5 tonnes bollard pull. Both Cronus and Oceanus Multi Cats have a 340 ton-metre fore crane and a 80 ton-metre aft crane. The fore crane is equipped with a constant tensioning winch. They have an enlarged depth, allowing the working deck to be 1.10 m above the waterline (normally: 80-90 cm). In addition to anchor and pipeline handling, the 3213 will deliver supplies, water and fuel oil.
