First of two AHTS for Brodospas launchedVessel & ROV News // May 12, 2009
The first of two Damen AHTS 6615 anchor handlers for Brodospas was launched on 10 April. Construction has been taking place at Damen Shipyards Galati in Romania. Delivery of both vessels is scheduled for the third and fourth quarter of this year.
Brodospas, the well established Croatian operator with their main office in Split, operates supply boats, anchor handlers and tugs.
The newly ordered vessels will boost the fleet renewal programme which started with the Damen Fast Crew Supplier 3507 Silni.
The vessels will be deployed worldwide, however since the main activities of Brodospas are currently in Mediterranean it is most likely that the vessels will start there.
The AHTS 6615 is one of the latest designs from the Damen Offshore Series. The Offshore Series include both AHTS and PSVs covering a bollard pull range from 80 to 200 ton (AHTS) and a deadweight range varying from 2,000 to 4,500 tons (PSV).
