Damen said on Thursday that this would be the fifteenth FCS 5009 to join the Naviera Integral fleet.

The company added that the vessel was ordered in anticipation of international oil majors beginning operations in the Gulf of Mexico following the recent opening of the area to competition by the outgoing government.

The 50-meter FCS 5009 has an axe-bow design and can deliver crews and cargos to offshore installations out in the Gulf of Mexico in a wide range of weather conditions. Naviera’s newest addition will also feature DP2 and FiFi1 capability as well as Damen’s “connected ship” technology.

According to Damen, Naviera’s fleet ends 2018 once again fully contracted following a difficult period for the offshore oil sector in the Gulf of Mexico.

Damen and Naviera have worked together for over twenty years, and the new vessel will bring the number of Damen vessels flying the Naviera flag to twenty-four.

The contract signing ceremony was attended by Kommer Damen as well as Josien Damen, René Berkvens, and Arnout Damen.

Damen noted that the rapid delivery of the FCS 5009 is the result of a stock vessel being available at its Song Cam shipyard in Vietnam. Following the final fitting out, the vessel will depart Vietnam and make the passage to Mexico on its own keel via Hawaii and the Panama Canal.
