At the International Tug, Salvage and OSV Convention on June 19, Wilson Sons (Brazil) and Damen Shipyards Group (Netherlands) signed a contract for two Damen PSV 5000s. This contract further strengthens cooperation between the two companies, where Wilson Sons builds vessels locally using a Damen design, engineering and material package.

The PSV 5000s, measuring 85 meters in length and 19 meters in width, will feature a diesel-electric propulsion line with DP2 station keeping capabilities. The vessels will comply with the specifications of the sixth round of the program for the renovation of the offshore support fleet of Petrobras, including a travelling gantry crane for offshore operations. Next to this, future upgrades like bulk handling systems have been taken into account in the design.

The vessels will be built at Wilson Sons Guarujá II (Spain) and delivered to Wilson Sons Ultratug, who will operate the vessel on a 6 + 6 year charter contract with Petrobras. Damen and Wilson Sons have been working together for more than 20 years.
