Damen to launch new PSV seriesVessel & ROV News // November 8, 2011
Damen Shipyards is unveiling a new PSV at EUROPORT 2011 and will launch a complete range of PSVs in the next few months.
The PSV 3300 E3 is a dedicated supply vessel designed to transport supplies to oil and gas rigs and is specifically designed to perform safely in adverse weather conditions. The first two vessels will be built at Damen shipyard in Galati, Romania. Delivery is scheduled for early 2013.
Damenís new vessel series will range from the smallest PSV of 1,500 dwt to the largest of approximately 6,500 dwt. The new range of vessels is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2012.
Although the series of vessels are primarily designed as PSVs, the vessels can also serve as a basis for other offshore support services such as diving support, drilling or well stimulation. The vessels can also play a role in oil recovery and firefighting operations.
