MPI Workboats employed on Suez Canal expansion project
Two of MPI Workboats’ 17m windfarm-maintenance vessels, MPI Cardenio and MPI Cervantes, are currently operating in Egypt. Last year MPI Workboats secured long-term contracts for the vessels, Vroon said in its press release.
MPI Cardenio and MPI Cervantes were transported from Antwerp and started work on the project in November 2014, with the contracts running until the end of 2015.
The Suez Canal expansion project involves the widening and deepening of the Canal at Great Bitter Lake in Egypt, over a length of 25 km and to a depth of 24m. Our workboats are being used for crew transfers.
