The first deliveries from Damen Shipyards Group’s extensive new offshore portfolio open the way to the realization of the global group’s strategic ambition to challenge comfortable preconceptions on how best to source high performance ships in this specialized market.

The first of six Damen PSV 3300 vessels, built for Norwegian offshore support company World Wide Supply, is being delivered this week. These 3300’s are part of Damen’s new range of platform suppliers, based on a new, more efficient hull shape.

The 400-ton deck capacity PSV 3300 has been designed and built in line with Damen’s E3 principles - Environmentally friendly, Efficient in operation and Economically viable. It was developed after extensive design work in close cooperation with the client and full tank testing at Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (Marin).

“As a result, this state of the art PSV 3300 features a wave piercing bow, slender hull lines and diesel electric propulsion with azimuth stern drives, in a combination that minimizes fuel consumption,” said Jan van Os, Director Offshore. “The vessel offers superior seakeeping, ideal for rough seas, and features DP2 capability as well as newly designed anti-roll tanks and an optimized superstructure for crew comfort. Long smooth lines in the entire form also have a positive effect on the durability of coatings.”

The World Diamond will be the first PSV in the new series to be delivered to launching customer WWS (Norway). This type, the PSV 3300, is one of five newly designed Platform Supply Vessels available from Damen.

Damen’scurrent Offshore Series includes: PSVs ranging from 1,500 dwt to 6,500 dwt; Fast Crew Suppliers in lengths of 19m-67m featuring the renowned ‘Sea Axe’ bow that reduces slamming by up to 70%; Anchor Handling Tug Suppliers with 75t-200t of bollard pull; the Offshore Heavy Lift Vessel 1800; the ‘Ro-Ro Deep Dredge’; various standby and multi-purpose support vessels; and the powerful new Damen Offshore Carrier 7500, featuring a 2,300m2 deck area.

With encouragement from owners, Damen is already adding to the list, finalizing, for example, a new cable layer concept in March. “As we push on with new designs, our conviction is also strengthening that the market is ready for the favorable contractual arrangements, extensive documentation capability and crew training that only a truly global shipbuilding group can offer,” says Jan van Os. “Our strategy is to deliver high-tech vessels with a reduced Total Cost of Ownership.”
