The launch took place at the Neptune Ship Yard in Hardinxveld-Giessendam.

Neptune Marine Service recently converted the existing anchored barge NP-459 into a dedicated cable repair DP2 vessel with 50t offshore knuckleboom crane named Curo.

The vessel will be available from mid-June 2024 for cable repair and installation projects and will be sailing for its first inter-array replacement project in Germany in coming two weeks.

Curo is equipped with an innovative cable repair spread including a dual basket carousel, to repair and replace HVAC and HVDC inter-array cables, export cables and inter-connectors.

Due to the combination of its eight-point mooring system and DP2 capabilities, the vessel can operate year-round in both very shallow and deepwater conditions.
