The Netherlands: Damen Shipyards Secures Another Two PSVs Order

Norwegian ship owner World Wide Supply (WWS) has ordered another two PSV 3300 CD’s from Damen Shipyards. The two platform suppliers are added to the four that WWS announced to be built in December 2011. The extra vessels will be delivered end of 2013 and operated by Remøy Management AS.

Mr. Ståle Remøy, Managing Director of Remøy, says: “We are glad we have been able to achieve another two ships from Damen of this modern design. With the special wave piercing bow and the extremely slim waterlines, these ships will have an increased operational window, higher transit speed, reduced fuel consumption and increased crew comfort. The living quarters are developed according to strict demands for noise reduction, which also improves comfort and safety for the crew. We have a lot of faith in these new vessels and are looking forward to service the offshore market.”

The PSV 3300 CD design, one of Damen’s new offshore support series, is developed to service oil and gas rigs safely and economically, especially in adverse weather conditions. Jan van Os, Product Director Offshore, says: “We’ve aimed for a ‘workhorse’, a PSV with excellent seakeeping qualities, low maintenance and in line with the latest Clean Design and Environmental Protection requirements of the major classification societies. Also, it should be an efficient vessel for the crew to operate and to live on when at sea. As to maintenance, it should be low. For example, we’ve reduced the number of angles to achieve this. This has resulted in long smooth lines, which has a positive effect on the durability of coatings, reduces the formation of rust etc.”

The PSV 3300 is designed according to Damen’s E3 principles: Environmentally friendly, Efficient in operation and Economically viable. Hull shape, coatings, the location of oil tanks, refrigerants, recovery of waste heat and engine emissions have all been thoroughly researched and (re-)designed accordingly in order to create cost efficient, emission friendly offshore supply vessel.
