Damen Signs Deal with PAJAM
Damen Shipyards Group signed a contract with the Port Authority of Jamaica (PAJAM) for the delivery of a Utility Vessel 3911. The vessel will be used by Damen’s client for buoy-laying and maintenance support operations in the ports of the island nation.
Damen has a long relationship with PAJAM, stretching back to the 1990s, when the port authority placed orders with Damen for two Stan Tugs 2909. This was followed, more recently, by orders for two Pilot Vessels 1605.
The UV 3911 is a 39.4 x 10.8 meter vessel built to facilitate a crew of twelve. It will feature an A-frame with a 50 tonne capability and a towing winch, remotely operable from the wheelhouse. It will be outfitted at Damen Maaskant Shipyard Stellendam in the Netherlands. Its delivery is scheduled for Q1-Q2 2021.
