Damen Shiprepair & Conversion has developed a new innovative product, the Quick Docking/Fuel Saving package. This offers owners a fast and low-cost additional docking with the sole aim of reducing fuel consumption in between the five-year statutory survey period. The first vessel booked under the new concept has docked at Damen Shiprepair Brest (France). It is the capesize bulker Castillo De Catoira operated by Spanish company Empresa Naviera Elcano. Damen expects to bring more of its vessels to its shiprepair yards. Jos Goris, Managing Director of Damen Shiprepair Brest and initiator of the concept, commented, “We know that hull resistance builds up during years of service and this can have a significant impact on performance and consequently, fuel costs.By introducing this product, we are thinking along with our customers and know that fuel costs are a major consideration for shipowners and charterers, especially in this economic climate.” Kees Jan Groen, Commercial Director Damen Shiprepair & Conversion added, “Charterers are focusing more and more on vessel performance and its impact on fuel consumption. Owners can add value by ensuring the vessel is performing in accordance with the chartering agreement and Damen can add value and help our clients perform better.” Quick Docking characteristics
