Work in progress

At the beginning of November last “Arctica-2” has been drydocked. Just like her sister vessel “Arctica-1”, Niestern Sander will replace the bulbous bow for an icebow and install two crane foundations. At the beginning of December next Liebherr will deliver the ordered 60T’s cranes, completely outfitted to work under arctic circumstances. “Arctica-1” is scheduled for mid-December to return to our yard for instalment of the cranes as well.

In the meantime both vessels will be equipped with a ballastwater tankheating system designed by Wolfard & Wessels in close cooperation with Niestern Sander.
