Calypso christening 0Van Oord’s brand-new cable laying vessel Calypso was christened in Rotterdam, The Netherlands during a festive ceremony. The vessel was christened by Ms. Inca Cerutti. She is the wife of Niek Hoek, chairman of the Supervisory Board.
 
After the ceremony, the christening lady and employees and guests had the opportunity to board the vessel for a guided tour. The Calypso is Van Oord’s second cable-laying vessel. It will mainly be used for installing inter-array grid and export cables for offshore wind projects worldwide and it is equipped with two cable carousels. Apart from the ability to run on biofuel, this hybrid vessel has future-ready engines with built-in flexibility to anticipate e-fuels. It has a large battery pack, a shore supply connection, and an energy management system.
