We have made a significant contribution to the enlargement of the fleet of the largest Polish dredging company.

The newbuilding, contracted at Remontowa in May 2012, was christened mid March 2013 and delivered shortly afterwards. Named Kraken, it is a valuable new addition to Poland’s largest dredging company PRCiP (Dredging and Underwater Works Enterprise).

According to Zbigniew Barański, CEO of PRCiP, selection of "Remontowa" SA as the yard to build and deliver a new dredger was drawn from the trust this yard enjoys on the market and from confidence that the new unit will represent high quality at competitive price. Concept design of the dredger has been conceived by Szczecin based naval architecture consultancy, while workshop drawings have been developed by Remontowa Marine Design & Consulting. The keel for Kraken was laid on July 26, 2012. The steel hull, weighing 280 tons, was launched on October 24 last year by two floating cranes working in tandem - Maja and „Remontowa’s” own REM 220.



Kraken is a non-self propelled backhoe dredge barge. As such it will be operated in ports approaches and roadsteds, ports, river estuaries, etc. The unit, manned by six persons, features length of 35 m, 14 m beam, 2,75 m depth and 1,38 m draft. At the bow a modern excavator of Liebherr make with capacity of 3.5 cu. m is installed allowing for dredging depth up to 15 m below the waterline. The dredger is equipped with spuds lowered to the seabed for stabilization during dredging operations.



Remontowa SA and PRCiP have been tied for years by fruitful co-operation. Dredgers and self propelled split barges from PRCiP fleet visit „Remontowa” for repairs and maintenance. Two PRCiP grab dredgers were built at the shipyard  in 1971 and they perform excellently till the present days, which evidently proves the high quality of craftsmanship „Remontowa” is able to deliver.
