The largest pontoon ever stock-built by Damen was sold to the Canadian McKeil-Malaspina partnership and will be towed to Newfoundland on the east coast of Canada this summer where it  will be used to support offshore construction operations.

The Damen Stan Pontoon 12032 measures 120 x 32.2 meters, has a deadweight capacity of approximately 20,000 tons and a hold of 8.1 meters. The barge is equipped with a sophisticated ballast system, generating set and mooring winches. With a deck load of 20 t/m², this barge can be used for complex RoRo operations and transport of large offshore constructions.

Earlier this year Damen shipped 16 newly built pontoons from her shipyards in China to Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam. Most of the stock-built pontoons are sold, leaving only two Stan Pontoons and a Damen Transshipment Barge (including Liebherr crane) for direct sale. A new shipment of Damen Pontoons is scheduled to arrive early 2014 in the Port of Rotterdam to ensure short delivery times.
