SNC SD in association with Nasdis, Galati is responsible for the full vessel design and production info for the construction of a multipurpose pipelay/cablelay/trenching and post-trenching barge built with a very low draft for ultra-shallow water/swamp operations in the Caspian Sea. The barge 96 m long, 33 m wide will be built in Santierul Naval Constanta (Constanta Shipyard) Romania.  However, in order to transit to the Caspian Sea via the Volga Don canal system (maximul allowable width of 16.5 m) the vessel will pass in two sections and afterwards will be joined without the need for a floating dock, using a mechanical joining procedure. Tribon is the chosen software to be used.
