Scheepswerf Gebr. Kooiman BV informs it has received a contract to widen a mussel dredger by 60cm on both sides. The job will be executed in the shipbuilding hall of Kooiman in Zwijndrecht

The vessel, NOR 204 Andrea Norddeich was built in 1977 by Schifs- & Bootswerft Lübbe Voss, Westerende-Kirchlog. Prior to the widening, the ship’s dimensions were 34,2m x 6m , having a draft of 1,86m and she measured 118GT/191 DWT. The vessel is owned by shipping company Christoffers in Norden-Norddeich, Duitsland.
The widening of the ship with 2 x 60cm will be performed over the entire length of the vessel. The ship’s shell plating will be cut loose both at PS and SB from stern to bow  The port and starboard shell plating will be positioned at 60cm besides the ship.
Thereafter, the deck, bottom, bulkheads and structural parts will be extended to the shell plating again. The hold will be widened with stainless steel from 4,30m up to 5,50m. Also the bulkheads of the hold will be increased. The fore part of the bulbous bow and the bow will be brought forward, resulting in a longer ship after the widening.
Upon completion, the vessel will measure approximately 35,5m x 7,2m. The works will be performed indoor in a period of 8-10 weeks.
