UKD Sealion

Multicat Dredging Support & Buoy Handling Vessel

 UKD Sealion

UKD Sealion is a 25 metre Multicat built by Damen Shipyards for UK Dredging.  She is specified to provide a multi purpose dredging support vessel with bed levelling, buoy handling and survey capability. Her principal duties are those of a bed leveller and her 10 metre plough is capable of working at a depth of 20 metres.

The Multicat form provides the stability to assist in dredging support, to handle floating pipelines and to act as a marine working platform.

Fully equiped with DGPS and digital mapping, her survey equipment is fully compatible with all UK Dredging's fleet and able to act on a stand alone basis.  A winch encoder accurately determines plough depth so that the combined package offers a complete survey and bed levelling service.

Winch arrangements permit 3 point anchoring, allowing accurate positioning for holding the vessel on station in difficult tidal or weather conditions.

With accommodation for 5 people UKD Sealion can be self sufficient and is available for work 24 hours per day.
