Demobilization cable laying vessel Elektron in Delfzijl by Niestern Sander

At the beginning of this week, the cable laying vessel Elektron arrived for demobilization at the Royal Niestern Sander shipyard. The demobilization of this offshore ship is carried out at the repair quay side, at the dock location of the shipyard in the port of Delfzijl. The job is done by Niestern Sander in 2 shifts 24 hours a day.

The vessel, measuring 87.35 m in length, was mobilized by the shipyard at the beginning of June to start work for NKT on the Nordlink project. For this mobilization, Niestern Sander has manufactured large platforms, cable chutes and cable guide frames in its workshop. Subsequently, these were all placed on board at the dock location. After the cable laying vessel was equipped with the necessary equipment, she left Delfzijl.

In the meantime, Elektron has successfully completed the project and is being demobilized. The cable guide frames are stored in the Eemshaven for future projects. Niestern Sander expects to be ready with the demobilization at the end of the week. Skilled people and a favourable location in relation to the North Sea makes Niestern Sander a shipyard which is regularly involved in the field of mobilization and demobilization of ships.
