Damen secures two PSV orders in Brazil

Wilson Sons (Brazil) and Damen Shipyards Group (NL) have recently signed a contract for two Damen PSV 5000 platform supply vessels.

This contract further strengthens the high level of cooperation between Damen and Wilson Sons, where Wilson Sons builds vessels locally using a Damen design, engineering and material package, Damen said in a statement.

The PSV 5000 vessels, measuring 85 m in length and 19 m in width, will feature a diesel-electric propulsion line with DP2 station keeping capabilities. The vessels will comply to the specifications of the sixth round of the Program for the Renovation of the Offshore Support Fleet of Petrobras, including a travelling gantry crane for offshore operations. Next to this, future upgrades like Bulk Handling systems have been taken into account in the design.

The vessels will be built at Wilson Sons Guarujá II (SP) and delivered to WilsonSons Ultratug, which will operate the vessels on a 6 + 6 year charter contract with Petrobras. Damen and Wilson Sons have been working together for more than 20 years.
