The Netherlands: Royal Wagenborg Takes Over First High Speed VEKA Catamaran

Royal Wagenborg Takes Over First High Speed VEKA Catamaran

The first high speed VEKA Catamaran for the Offshore Wind Farm industry has been delivered to Royal Wagenborg. The catamaran will supply remote wind farms in the North Sea with crew, equipment and various supplies.

Later this week, VEKA will launch a second catamaran for a shakedown cruise, and it will not be long before this catamaran will also be servicing one of the offshore wind farms.

With the completion of these powerful “support vessels” VEKA Group strikes a new path; the Offshore Wind Farm market. Last year, VEKA engaged in a collaboration with BMT Nigel Gee, a leading engineer with a global presence in the offshore industry. With the development of a series of powerful catamarans, VEKA caters to a strong demand in the market of fast and safe transport of personnel, technicians and equipment to and from offshore wind farms.

The strong lightweight aluminum construction provides safety and a top speed of 27 nautical miles per hour and caries a total of twelve passengers, three crew members and three 10 ft containers.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
