Damen Shipyards Galati has delivered the World Diamond, the first of six Platform Supply Vessels for Norwegian offshore owner World Wide Supply, built to an entirely new Damen design. The World Diamond was christened by godmother Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Margarita of Romania on June 28, in a yard ceremony attended by 150 guests.

“Delivery of this first PSV3300 represents a new era in Damen’s continuing offshore supply vessel story,” said Arnout Damen. “This has been a truly collaborative project, with Damen drawing on expertise from within the group and the client and also from partners among leading research institutes and subcontractors to deliver a first in class vessel designed, built and equipped to European standards for a world class customer.”

Steinar Kulen, representing owner WWS, said, “The cooperation on World Diamond’s design has ensured the delivery of a mid-size PSV capable of worldwide operations to meet the market to come. We have also been very happy with the cooperation with Damen on the build and with the quality and construction undertaken by the yard in Galati.”

Delivery of the new design involved extensive CAD/CAM modeling by Damen Shipyards Gorinchem in the Netherlands and rigorous model testing at MARIN (Maritime Research Institute Netherlands). The PSV 3300 is one type within the new range of Damen PSV’s.

The 80.1m length PSV 3300 has a deck load of 1,500 tons will undertake crew and materials transport to and from offshore platforms but also offers fire-fighting and oil pollution recovery capability. Equipped with azimuth thrusters and dynamic positioning (DP2), the design is distinguished by slender hull lines to meet challenging conditions and minimize fuel consumption, as well as enhanced crew comfort.

Kulen said four of the six PSV 3300s due delivery from Damen Shipyards Galati had secured long term contracts supporting Petrobras, offshore Brazil. The remaining two are expected to be offered to the North Sea spot charter market.

Earlier in the day, World Opal, the fifth vessel in the series due delivery to WWS from the Romanian yard was launched into the water.
