The Reynaert entered service in 2007. The major part of the pumping power is delivered by the three Wärtsilä 6L26 engines. The ship is also equipped with two Wärtsilä controllable pitch propellers, one Wärtsilä transverse thruster and Wärtsilä propulsion controls.
The vessel is designed to work in shallow waters, and for applications such as, port maintenance, beach replenishment, and land reclamation projects. With the design of this large load capacity vessel, a high degree of versatility was achieved by maintaining a relatively low overall weight, and thus a relatively shallow draught.
