On 30 June 2021 Van Oord’s hybrid water injection vessels ‘Maas’ and ‘Mersey’ were christened. Water injection dredging is a technique developed by Van Oord. It is an efficient and environmentally friendly way to keep navigation channels, ports and rivers at the required depth.
Baars Confloat was asked to supply pontoons for the festive occasion that served as landing jetties for the new vessels. Our team was also allowed to be present at the ceremony – a great opportunity to look behind the scenes of the client. Baars and Van Oord are currently working together on beautiful Dutch marine engineering projects on the Afsluitdijk and the Averijhaven in IJmuiden. Abroad, we are working together on projects in the United Arab Emirates and Kazakhstan.
A lot of success!
Van Oord is a thoroughly Dutch family-owned company that stands for quality, innovation and safety. A perfect match with the core values of our company. We wish Van Oord good luck with the Maas and the Mersey!
