The towage commenced on 6th August and 38 hours later the “CM Pecos”, towing “Vesalius”, arrived at the construction site of the new Ferry Complex at Kuryk Port.

This is CMI Offshore’s first job for client Jan De Nul, one of the world’s leading companies within the dredging and marine construction sector.
