Van Oord’s first cable-laying vessel used for constructing offshore wind parks, the Nexus, was captured today when she arrived in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

She will be christened on Saturday 7th of March by Ms J. Damen-Carli, the wife of Mr K. Damen, member of the supervisory board at Van Oord and chairman of Damen Shipyards Group, in the presence of Van Oord’s guests and employees.

This nearly 123-metre modern vessel was built by Damen Shipyards Group in Galati, Romania and equipped with a cable carrousel with a capacity of 5,000 tonnes to install long export cables.
