New supplier CMM Gravity to start on long-term contract with Petrobras.

CMM has taken delivery of a Damen Platform Supply Vessel 3300. The 80-meter, 3,300t deadweight vessel CMM Gravity will be deployed in the Brazilian waters from June 2014 on a 4+4 year contract with Petrobras.

For CMM (Compagnie Maritime Monégasque S.A.M.), the vessel will mark a further step in its ambitious plans to expand in the offshore space and expand its offering by developing its capabilities as an OSV operator. It is the yard’s seventh delivery of Damen’s new mid-size PSV 3300 design. This vessel will be compliant to Petrobras specifications, including Petrobras Annex V.

Next to the 728 m² deck with a 1,500-metric-ton deck load capacity, the vessel will feature extensive tank capacities to handle different types of fluids and bulk. The vessel has a DP2 system which relies on four generator sets, two Azimuth thrusters and two bow thrusters. The 14-knot, 16,2-meter wide (molded) vessel will be LR-classified for worldwide deployment. The most remarkable feature includes the bulb-less axe bow as developed by Damen, and the bright red that CMM has selected for its corporate color.

“We are proud to have been awarded the Petrobras long-term charter contract,” CMM-president Christophe Vancauwenbergh said. “Our goal is to be a proactive service provider with a focus on the ever more demanding needs of our clients in conjunction with delivering quality and technical sophistication. We therefore have sought the added value of an experienced top-shelf shipbuilder,” Mr. Vancauwenbergh commented about CMM choosing Damen. “Their rapid global service and backing added to this.”

 “From this first order we hope that CMM will let us support their ambition to expand worldwide,” Rutger Dolk, Damen sales manager Americas said. “This new order further strengthens our position in the Brazilian offshore market. When CMM’s vessel will be deployed in June 2014, it will lift the number of Damen-designed Offshore Support Vessels operating for Petrobras in the Brazilian waters to more than 20 vessels.

“The excellent performance of Damen Shipyards Galati, our Romanian yard, enables us to deliver a wide range of high quality offshore support vessels,” Dolk added. The transaction has been structured by Monalux Asset Management SARL in Luxembourg.
