Ukraine’s shipyard Zaliv has renewed its cooperation with Damen Shipyards Bergum (the Netherlands). By the order of Damen, Zaliv will build two highly outfitted hulls of platform supply vessels of project PSV 3300.
Zaliv’s marketing director Mr. Yuriy Dovgiy said, “Damen Shipyards Bergum is long standing and well-proved partner of the yard for whom Zaliv had built a few series of multipurpose vessels, however, construction of offshore vessels will be the first common experience.”
According to the agreed schedule, the works on these hulls will start within April this year. Delivery of the first hull is scheduled in January, 2013, the second – in April, 2013. Zaliv will carry out not only hull works, but also extended scope of works related to outfitting, in particular, mounting of insulation, installation of cable trays, mounting of main vessels’ equipment like diesel-generators, pumps, steering gear, etc.
The PSV 3300 CD design, one of Damen’s new offshore support series, is developed to service oil and gas rigs safely and economically, especially in adverse weather conditions.
Damen’s platform supply vessel is designed according to Damen’s E3 principles: Environmentally friendly, Efficient in operation and Economically viable. Hull shape, coatings, the location of oil tanks, refrigerants, recovery of waste heat and engine emissions have all been thoroughly researched and (re-)designed accordingly in order to create cost efficient, emission friendly offshore supply vessel.
