Damen Shiprepair Brest (France) received a booking for the drydocking and repairs of two shuttle tankers managed by Knutsen NYK Offshore Tankers A/S. The 88,109 GRT sister vessels Karen Knutsen and Sallie Knutsen expect to arrive end February and Middle of March respectively.

Damen Brest’s Managing Director Jos Goris commented, “We are very pleased with the order from Knutsen NYK Offshore Tankers. Shuttle tankers are delicate vessels and require a high level of operational reliability hence the selection criteria of a dry-docking will always be carefully considered by owners and operators. We are happy to see that Knutsen NYK Offshore Tankers has chosen for Damen Shiprepair Brest.”

Mr. Goris continued, “We are known for our highly qualified and trained mechanical department and surely this has been taken into consideration by owners in the decision making process.”

Damen Shiprepair Brest presently has two Hyproc Shipping Company LNG carriers in the yard for extensive maintenance works, Italian owner LPG carrier Pertusola and Jan De Nul’s Simon Stevin for various modification works.
