Danish company Sea Consult ApS has taken delivery of its first Damen Twin Axe as the company prepares to enter the offshore wind market.

Based in Marstal, Sea Consult is a new customer to Damen and this will be the first Fast Crew Supplier (FCS) 2610 to be operated by a Danish company. The vessel already has work at Belgian and German offshore wind farms for the next year and the company’s new vessel is expected to be deployed in the next two weeks.

According to Damen, the short delivery time was a major reason the Danish company decided to choose the Damen high-speed catamaran. A Letter of Intent was signed in early June; Sea Consult and its crew arrived at Damen’s headquarters in Gorinchem, the Netherlands on June 29 and the vessel sailed with its crew and a Damen engineer to Sea Consult’s Danish base, arriving on Sunday evening June 31.

Owner and Managing Director of Sea Consult, Jan Fabricius, was on the FCS 2610’s first journey and commented that he was “very satisfied” with the vessel’s performance.“We had seen the Twin Axe FCS 2610 operating at several wind farms and on television and we were particularly impressed by the Axe Bow.” Damen explained that its Axe Bow hull offers low resistance, leading in turn to excellent seakeeping behavior and lower fuel consumption.

The FCS 2610 is very comfortable for the crew in terms of ergonomics and it is known for its ability to operate smoothly in higher sea states, Damen said. Sea Consult is considering the possibility of building up a small fleet of the Damen FCS 2610.

The vessel was built at Damen Shipyards Singapore, which is a Group specialist in high-speed aluminum craft.
