Newbuilt “multicat” Coastal Boxer delivered to Acta Marine
Acta Marine has taken delivery of yet another newbuilt “multicat” workboat. The vessel, named “Coastal Boxer”, is the fifth unit of the Eurocarrier 2209 type in Acta Marine’s fleet of more than 40 workboats.
All these five units have entered service during the last three 3 years, clearly demonstrating Acta Marine’s commitment to a program of fleet renewal and expansion. Later this year, two more newbuilt units will be added; a small crew launch and an anchor handling tug of 45 tons bollard pull.
The new Coastal Boxer measures 22 by 9 meters and has a total propulsion power output of 1120 kW (1520 bhp) generating a bollard pull of 18 tons. The vessel, which is fully certified to operate continuously upto 30 nautical miles off the coast, is equipped with a 50 tons anchor handling/towing winch and a 140 tons/meter hydraulic deck crane.
This type of workboats is particularly suited to provide a wide range of support services at maritime infrastructure projects. Immediately upon delivery, the Coastal Boxer set course for her first assignment; assisting coastal reinforcement works in the Netherlands.
Subsequently, the new vessel will go on charter at a dredging project in the port of Rotterdam.
