The video shows the launch of the fourth and last platform supply vessel Damen is building for the Canadian maritime services provider Atlantic Towing.
Unlike the first three platform supply vessels which are identical in design and features, the fourth one is designed specifically for inspection, repair and maintenance duties.
The most prominent distinction of this vessel will be its 100-ton active heave compensated crane intended for subsea operations.
The PSV 5000 vessels are all 90 meters long with a 19-meter beam. Powered by two diesel-electric motors, the ships have a deadweight of 5000 tonnes.
Atlantic Towing will mobilise all four vessels in North Atlantic oil fields off the Canadian coast.
