    Allianz and MCS take delivery of newbuild FCS

    Vessel & ROV News // November 10, 2016

    Allianz Middle East Ship Management and Maritime Craft Services (MCS) have taken delivery of a Damen Fast Crew Supplier 2610.

    The new vessel will offer safe and cost efficient crew transfer services for up to 50 passengers to and from the Abu Dhabi oil fields. The two companies welcomed guests on board the new vessel during this year’s Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference (ADIPEC).

    With the vessel available on stock, Damen carried out a number of adaptations to make it OPCO compliant. This meant preparing the vessel – MCS Allianz Venus – for operations in the Abu Dhabi oilfields.

    The most significant modification was made to the passenger accommodation, the capacity of which has been increased to 50 people. The vessel also has 90m2 of deck space, which is big enough to accommodate two 20 foot containers. Outfitting also included upgrading the five-man crew accommodation to allow for extended offshore duties.
