On 7 March 2015, the multipurpose vesselIsaac Newton, under construction at Uljanik Shipyard in Croatia, was launched from slipway number 2. The vessel was ordered in August 2013 by dredging and marine contractor Jan De Nul and is expected to be delivered this year.

Late last week, she gained a contract to install 148 kilometers of subsea export cables for the UK’s Race Bank offshore wind development project. The contract is set to commence in 2016.
