Noticed that Barent Zanen has not been in service for at least 8 months.
Last I heard was she was laid up at Rotterdam.
Have emailed Bos Kalis to try and find out what is happening to her.
Sadly there has been no response.
She was working on the Mersey last year for some weeks.

Would be grateful if anybody can help with latest information.

Regards
Keith

Thanks Gijsha for your reply.
I was aware of the info on Dredgepoint but wanting any info if she has been sold for scrap.
Built 1985 she is an old vessel and possibly would not get through a special survey.
In the meantime I have sent a further email to Bos Kalis Netherlands.

Baza wouldl surely pass its special survey if its capacity was needed. In general that depends on hoe much money one is willing to spend on the repairs. However in the current. economical situation she may not be reactivated again as the vessel is more expensive to operate than modern dredgers.

Hi Seakees.
I did explain to them that I was still a shipping enthusiast, like we all are.
Had been working in shipping throughtout my career but now retired.
Spent a lot of time on the waterfront watching their vessels and last year the Barent Zanen..

Hi Keith
re Barent Zanen, just a thought maybe they are keeping hold of her because she is built a Ice Class A1 to work in the ice , i don't think they have any other trailer with that class?
