Neptune Marine builds twin modular EuroCarrier 1205 for Jifmar Offshore Services

Jifmar Offshore Services, based in France, has ordered two modular EuroCarrier 1205. Both newbuild workboats will be deployed for nearshore and civil construction operations. Delivery is scheduled for summer 2019.

A flexible and versatile design

“The EuroCarrier 1205 is the result of feedback of our clients along the years,” says Jifmar. The vessels, which will be mainly used by Jifmar for civil construction operations, are customized to meet all operational requirements. In addition to the modular design, which makes it road transportable, the 12-metre workboats feature a 10T deck crane, 4-point mooring system, moonpool and IMO Tier III compliant engines.

Both workboats are built at Neptune Marine’s facilities in Aalst, The Netherlands. Through an efficient and integrated production process, Neptune Marine is able to deliver the vessels within a short time frame.

Long-term cooperation

Over the years Neptune Marine has delivered numerous vessels to Jifmar, including the Roxane Z and Jif Challenger. Both EuroCarriers 3413, equipped with a DP2 system, are used around the world for various offshore operations. In 2017, Neptune Marine also delivered a new EuroCarrier 2712, called Jif Marlin, to Jifmar. In addition to its extensive range of EuroCarrier multi-purpose workboats, the French offshore services provider also operates an accommodation barge and high-speed crew transfer vessel, both built by Neptune.
