On the 28th of April, 2016 the ‘Zwerver II’ was named. The name giving ceremony took place at her home port in Harlingen, the Netherlands. HVS Dredging Support looks back on a festive event. The 'Zwerver II' is an unique Multi-Purpose "Walk-to-Work" support vessel and is equipped with DP II, 4-point mooring, a crane of 510 Tm with an active heave compensated winch, a conventional crane of 370 Tm and a passive heave compensated gangway for the purpose of transferring crew to windmills/platforms. The Ships pulling force is 65 T which is exceptional with a depth of only 2.7 m in this class. The vessel was designed and built under Bureau Veritas and sails under the Dutch flag. She is versatile, mainly in the offshore and renewables market with services such as dredging support, anchor handling, cable laying, buried cables, diving support, ROV support and many other activities. The accommodation is MLC-certified and can accommodate 17 people. This number can be expanded through two custom made and fully Classed TLQ’s up to 21 people.
