SET won the order from the shipping company Meyer & van der Kamp GmbH & Co. KG in Varel in early 2011 to convert a long in the tooth mussel cutter into a modern water injection dredger.

The complete conversion was performed according to Germanischer Lloyd and BG-Verkehr regulations. It involved large parts of the hull, the complete superstructure incl. the wheelhouse, the complete water injection technology with its correspondingly complex hydraulic machinery, the mechanical engineering machinery, the interior fittings and the electronical and communications equipment.

The water injection dredger “Jan” has been operating under German flag in international coastal waters with RSA 20.
