Construction of a versatile shallow draft landing craft
March saw the delivery a landing craft 'Celestine' to Peschaud international. The vessel, which will be utilized in the Peschaud fleet, has been constructed to provide logistical support services in West-Africa.
The design was completed in-house, and provides a further expansion of Holland Shipyards' product range.
The versatile vessel, which has a maximum draft of only 1,65 meters, can easily be utilized in less manoeuvrable parts of the world, with a significantly reduced risk of grounding.
