Due to an increase in activities, Wagenborg Towage has added the ‘Waterpeil’ to its fleet. The Waterpeil is a so-called ‘shallow draft multipurpose utility vessel’ and is suitable for carrying out various tasks in very shallow waters, such as the Wadden Sea.
Waterpeil’s first job after being converted to multipurpose vessel was to perform soil measurements over the course of a few weeks at several wells in the Wadden Sea (while drying out on each low tide), commissioned by NAM.
The Waterpeil measures 32,65m, with a width of 6,46m and a depth of 0,9m. The utility vessel has a deck area of 130 m2 and is fitted with two 15 metre spuds and two deck cranes.
The Waterpeil can be deployed for ‘oil spill response’, for salvage operations or as a diving support vessel. The utility vessel is accommodated with a flat bottom, making it very well suited for drying out as on the Wadden Sea, the Dutch Shallows .
