Damen set to deliver AMPI fast crew supplier

Albwardy Damen is set to deliver the new fast crew supplier Damen FCS 4008, named AMPI, to Dubai-based Marine Core & Charter LLC.

The AMPI is the first of two identical vessels for the same client, who is an integrated offshore support and marine services company that manages and operates a wide range of workboats, tugs and barges. Albwardy Damen is a joint venture between Albwardy Investment, Dubai and the Damen Shipyards Group, Holland.

The protocol for the delivery of the first was signed yesterday on the Damen stand at the Seatrade Offshore Middle East Exhibition in Abu Dhabi. As part of the signing, Pascal Slingerland of Damen Shipyards Group presented Adib Abdel Massih, Chief Executive Officer of Marine Core & Charter, with a scale model of the FCS 4008 to mark the event.

The FCS 4008 is a recently introduced class of Damen crew boat in the DAMEN SEA AXE family.

The vessel is 41-meters long. According to Damen, the vessel’s steel hull ensures strength while its aluminium superstructure keeps the weight down and allows it reach speeds of up to 28 knots.

AMPI has industrial-grade seating inside for 90 personnel and the 150m² aft deck has ample space for containers and other equipment.

“Damen’s famous ‘axe bow’ design ensures excellent sea-keeping in a wide range of weather conditions, ensuring that personnel arrive at their destinations in good shape,” the shipbuilder said.

AMPI and her sister ship AMIA will be used for the long-distance delivery of crew and equipment for an oil and gas major operating in the Gulf.

Apart from this, Damen says that vessels of the FCS 4008 design are also suitable for safety stand-by duties, security/patrol missions and they can be even outfitted as dedicated, high-speed, oil recovery vessels.
