Visit Symphony

We welcomed 2.000 visitors on board of our offshore support vessel Symphony

Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 March was a very special weekend. Those two days we opened the cabins of our offshore support vessel Symphony in Zeebrugge. On Saturday, we welcomed 1,000 colleagues and their family members. On Sunday, it was the general public's turn. Once again, 1,000 visitors boarded the Symphony for a look at the innovative world of Jan De Nul and the part we play in realising the energy transition. And it was a big success!

Visit from the general public on Sunday

On Sunday 17 March, we took part in Flanders Technology and Innovation's Open Technology and Innovation Day. For this, we opened the doors of one of our sites where we put innovation into practice: our offshore support vessel Symphony. 1,000 visitors, young and old, came down to Zeebrugge on Sunday for a tour of the vessel. They did so for various reasons: a family member working on a Jan De Nul vessel, a keen interest in technology and energy, curiosity about what life is like on board, or the enthusiasm for a job at Jan De Nul.

Throughout the tour, visitors not only discovered what life on board is like, but also learned about how Jan De Nul is helping to build the energy transition. They discovered exactly how we transport, install and protect cables and what equipment we use to do so. Our trencher Swordfish that was installed on the quay and our cable-laying vessel Connector that was docked next to Symphony perfectly illustrated the story.

Visit from colleagues and their family on Saturday

Of course, we also thought of our own colleagues. They were able to visit Symphony with their family members on Saturday. Throughout the day, colleagues and family members were able to immerse themselves for an hour and a half in the living and working world of the crew aboard the Symphony. The visit day was the ideal moment for Jan De Nul employees to give their family members a glimpse of their daily activities, or to discover for themselves what the job of colleagues on board actually entails.
