Projects Pirate pipes
In the fight against piracy, we have installed what is known as a pirate pipe, or water cannon, on the tow hopper dredge Willem van Oranje. With this pirate pipe, this ship has been given a sustainable, effective and legal solution for the protection against piracy.
Water cannons create an extremely powerful water jet, so that it is virtually impossible for pirates to approach the ship.
