Damen delivering vessels to Nigeria

Dutch shipbuilder Damen Shipyards has won an order for the supply of two PSV 3300 Platform Supply Vessels and two FCS 5009 Fast Supplier Vessels.

The vessels will be built for LATC Marine from Nigeria.

According to a press release by Damen, LATC Marine aims to set new standards in the West African offshore oil sector through acquiring modern and technologically advanced assets to serve international & local clients operating in the region. Vessels servicing the offshore industry in the Gulf of Guinea, and specifically Nigeria, typically are substantially older than those operating elsewhere in the world – until now.

Gbolahan Shaba, COO of LATC Marine comments: “Our aim is to redefine the concept of quality tonnage in the Gulf of Guinea and particularly in Nigeria. We plan to locally develop the necessary skill sets that will sustain our quality service to the most demanding clientele who run very complex operations in the most challenging environments. Ultimately, our strategy is to attain the capacity to build and maintain quality tonnage in Nigeria. We anticipate strong demand for repair and docking services in our region and we plan to create the facilities to meet that demand, professionally and safely”.
