Debmarine Namibia, a 50/50 joint venture between the Government of the Republic of Namibia and De Beers Group, today announced it is planning for the construction of the world’s largest custom-built diamond mining vessel.

The new vessel, which is projected to cost approximately US$142 million (N$2 billion), is expected to commence operations in 2021.

It will work alongside the five other mining vessels in the Debmarine Namibia fleet, enhancing the business’s ability to recover diamonds off Namibia’s Atlantic coastline. At 176 metres long, the vessel will be two metres longer than the largest vessel currently in the fleet, the mv Mafuta.
