Wilson Sons takes delivery of PSVVessel & ROV News // August 1, 2016
Wilson Sons Ultratug Offshore, the joint venture between Wilson Sons and the Chilean maritime services provider Ultramar, has taken delivery of a Damen PSV 5000. The vessel was built at Wilson Sons shipyard in Guaruja, Brazil. The delivery is the first of a two vessel contract, with the second vessel due for completion later in 2016.
“For this vessel, and the one still under construction, we provided the full engineering package in addition to certain key materials,” said Damen's Sales Manager Americas Rutger Dolk. “A key point is that the engineering package takes into account the yard using local equipment and materials. We will also play a supporting role during the commissioning of both vessels.”
At 85.25m long with a 19m beam, the Damen PSV 5000 is named Larus.
