Trencher resurfaced at Moerdijk

A very special machine has been operating out of Van der Vlist’s Terminal Moerdijk facility over the past few months. The equipment of VBMS has been using the Terminal as a base for it’s operations.

The multi-purpose cable trencher can bury cable under the ocean floor, and can be used with a wide range of cable types. Van der Vlist facilitated extensive modifications to the machine, as well as multiple dry and wet tests on the quayside in Moerdijk.

The Trenchformer was then ready for it’s first project, laying cable for a wind farm off the coast of Noordwijk. In order to get to the site, the impressive vehicle was loaded to a barge from quay, to be taken across and join the ship Ndurance, which has been modified to support the machine in it’s task.

Following the successful first project, the Trenchformer has returned to secure indoor storage in Moerdijk, where it will be assessed, monitored and tested ready for it’s next voyage.
