Damen Shipyards Norway Set to Deliver Stan Tug 1205

Press Release
Monday, March 18, 2013

A few months after opening an office in Stavanger, Damen Shipyards is set to deliver a second Stan Tug to a Norwegian owner - EB Marine A/S - a family-owned diving company, which is one of the oldest diving companies in Norway. This latest order for a Stan Tug 1204 follows an order for a Stan Tug 1004 earlier in the year. Damen Shipyards opened the office in October 2012 to serve the offshore industry and Norwegian shipowners. This represents the first time the Dutch group has opened a sales office outside of the Netherlands. The STu 1205 will be delivered on March 20th in Stavanger.

Torgeir Erga, Deputy Manager of EB Marine, says: “We have been awarded a contract for the subsea work for the foundations of a new bridge in Molde, in northern Norway, therefore we needed a new tugboat, with a lot of power that had to be delivered in a very short time.” The contract is due to begin in April.

EB Marine visited Damen’s headquarters in Gorinchem (The Netherlands) and took the new vessel, named Broltus, out for a trial. Mr. Erga was impressed with how much power the Stan Tug 1205 has. “Probably half of our work involves pulling heavy, weighted pipelines so the new tug will be very suited to this work, as well as the foundation contract,” he emphasises.

Delivery in just a few weeks
After some modifications, including extra navigation equipment, she will sail from Damen Head Quarter in Gorinchem to Rotterdam where she will be transported on a Wagenborg carrier on March 18 to Stavanger.

Commenting on the Norwegian market, Mr. Hottentot says: “From our portfolio we can provide vessels for several markets – ferries, pontoons, fisheries and aquaculture vessels, maintenance & inspection vessels, research vessels, tugs, LNG-powered vessels and those from our offshore series.”

Currently, six Platform Supply Vessels 3300 vessels are under construction for Norwegian client WWS. Although the standard PSV has a 750 m² spacious deck, Damen can also build PSVs with decks of up to 1,000 m² - all from the newly designed PSV-range.
