Damen Delivers Third PSV to WWS

 

Damen Shipyards Galati has handed over the third Platform Supply Vessel in a series of six to World Wide Supply of Norway.

This six-ship order heralds a new era in offshore construction for Damen Shipyards Group.

World Pearl is built to Damen’s entirely new PSV 3300 design. The first of the Class PSV 3300, World Diamond, was delivered in July to the Norwegian company.

“Delivery of the first PSV 3300 represents a new era in Damen’s continuing offshore supply vessel story,” said Arnout Damen commenting at the time of the first delivery.

“This has been a truly collaborative project, with Damen drawing on expertise from the client and within the group, as well as from partners among leading research institutes and subcontractors to deliver a ‘first in class vessel’ designed, built and equipped to European standards for a world class customer.”

Meeting future demand

Delivery of the new design involved extensive CAD/CAM modelling by Damen Shipyards Gorinchem in the Netherlands and model testing at Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN). The 3300 is part of an entire new range of Damen PSVs.

With an 80.1m length, the PSV 3300 has a deck load of 1,500 tonnes. The new type can be used to transport crew and equipment to and from offshore platforms but it also offers fire-fighting and oil pollution recovery capability. Equipped with azimuth thrusters and dynamic positioning (DP2), the design is distinguished by slender hull lines to meet challenging conditions, minimise fuel consumption and to enhance crew comfort.

Long-term contracts supporting Petrobras

Four of the six World Wide Supply PSV 3300s have secured long-term contracts supporting Petrobras, offshore Brazil. The remaining two are expected to be offered to the North Sea spot charter market.
