Dutch company Offshore Wind Services B.V. (OWS), a specialist in providing crew transfer vessels to the offshore wind industry, is the first to order the next generation Damen Twin Axe Fast Crew Supplier 2610.

With the contract signed end-December 2013, the construction of the new vessel began immediately and is set to be delivered in October this year.

According to Damen, Twin Axe Fast Crew Supplier 2610, introduced to the market in 2011, has already established itself as “The Industry Standard” for the offshore wind market, capable of operating further offshore in rougher weather conditions, while ensuring safe transfer and vast cargo capacity.

Facilities for the technicians and the crew have been improved, with the addition of a pantry, changing room and a spare part area easily accessible at deck level. Furthermore, the operational capacity of the vessel has been upgraded by introducing modifications to bow thrusters and gearboxes. Eight CCTV cameras also give full coverage of the decks and vessel boundaries, which increases safety levels.

Workships Contractors’ Managing Director Jan Dirk Hudig commented, “Damen has further enhanced the FCS 2610 design over the last few years and OWS and one of our prospective clients have had considerable input in the process. This ensures that Damen is providing the market with a vessel entirely suited to the offshore wind industry, specialists like OWS and in turn, the end customers.”

Jelle Meindertsma, Damen Sales Manager Benelux, said, “Although the Damen Twin Axe is known for its passenger and crew comfort and ability to operate smoothly in higher sea states already, this has been further enhanced with the seating area placed on the bridge deck, giving passengers a full 360-degree view.”
