EDT Offshore (Cyprus), an operations and management company for offshore support and dredging services, has taken delivery of a Damen Fast Crew Supplier 3507 and an FCS 5009: the EDT Leda and the EDT Nefeli.

Both are built according to the Damen Sea Axe design, which reduces slamming up to 75 percent and increases crew comfort. The EDT Nefeli is outfitted withDP1, FiFi 1 and a luxury interior for a high level of passenger comfort during longer trips.

EDT has a fleet of twenty Diving Support Vessels (DP3), Offshore Support Vessels, crew suppliers and dredgers, operating worldwide. Three of the company’s crew suppliers and two dredgers are designed and built by Damen.

“We are a family-company, and many of our employees have been with us from the start in 1980,” said Managing Director Darios Melas. “This is reflected in our business. We want our ships to be both high-tech and a ‘home away from home,’ so we spent a lot of attention on details. For Nefeli, we sat down with Damen to adapt the basic design to our needs and discuss the options offered by Damen. In addition to the dynamic positioning and fire-fighting systems, we’ve outfitted the vessel with extra accommodation for clients and their representatives and extra luggage compartments. Furthermore, this 50 metre crew boat will be making some long trips to platforms. Therefore, we’ve installed luxury seats with entertainment systems and internet access.”
