The 275 Men Accommodation Barge was the first DP2 vessel to be built in India. The hallmark of the design was its simplicity – very simple but unorthodox concept to tackle a complex problem. Many heads came together for the project. It took 2 years for completion, from order placement to delivery.
The WID does not “scoop”. But it does “bring up” – not outside but within the water. A totally out-of-box concept from a Dutch Naval Architect, unexplored in India till this vessel.
