Damen Building Four PSV's for World Wide Supply

press release
Friday, December 16, 2011

World Wide Supply orders four Platform Supply Vessels of Damen Shipyards’ new PSV 3300 series.

 

Newly founded offshore support company World Wide Supply (WWS) has ordered four PSV 3300 CD’s with Damen Shipyards. The PSV 3300 CD, built according to Damen’s E3 principles, is a newly designed platform supply vessel for servicing oil and gas rigs worldwide and is specifically designed to perform safely and economically in adverse weather conditions. All four vessels will be built at Damen Shipyards Galati, Romania. First delivery scheduled for early 2013, last delivery end of 2013.

 

The PSV 3300 CD was launched at Europort last November and is the result of a dedicated design and research process for a new type of offshore supplier: a real workhorse with good seakeeping qualities, less need for maintenance and reduced emission levels. The vessels are built according to the highest environmental and safety standards and with an eye for crew comfort.

 

The 80 m long vessel has a large, 720 m² main deck, improved speed performance with the same engine size compared to her predecessors and incorporates proven technology and components of Damen’s other PSV series. A unique eye-catching design, with a well-designed, sleek bow makes the PSV 3300 E3 a distinctive vessel. Damen benefited from design input from its Norwegian client WWS and from operational studies carried out on Damen PSV’s operating in the North Sea and in Brazilian waters. The result is a vessel with very little slamming, and improved comfort and safety for the crew, vessel and cargo.

 

World Wide Supply
 

WWS is owned by a group of Norwegian and international financial investors and industrial companies that see a need for specialized offshore services and fit-for-purpose vessels to match. WWS will enter into a management agreement with Remøy Management AS (Fosnavag, Norway) and will draw on the 40 years of experience and services of Remøy with respect to vessel management and crewing.

 

Remøy Management AS
 

Remøy and its group of companies is one of the main investors in WWS. Already in December 2010 Remøy publicly stated that the company was looking for new opportunities and keeping its eyes open for chances in other markets than its core-business market, that of battle vessels. With WWS, the group now seizes that opportunity. Since 1972, founder and chairman Ståle Remøy (a fisherman and captain since the age of 15) has provided services to the Norwegian marine sector through Remøy Management AS. Amongst others, the company manages six Norwegian Coast Guard vessels. Remøy’s commitment to innovation is shown, for example, in the fact that it has been an early adopter of diesel-electric engines and by its use of LNG-powered rescue ships. At Damen Shipyards they found like-minded partners for their new project.

 

Damen E3


To reduce the environmental impact of its vessels and improve efficiency at the same time, Damen adheres to its E3 principles: Environmentally friendly, Efficient in operation and Economically viable. Combining the needs of the planet, the people operating the ship and the owner’s need to make a profit, the need for a new design emerged. Hull shape, coatings, the location of oil tanks, refrigerants, recovery of waste heat and engine emissions. The PSV 3300 CD fulfills the latest requirements of Clean Design and Environmental Protection standards of the major classification societies.
