'Karen Knutsen' will arrive at the yard in February/March

France’s Damen Shiprepair Brest is to dry-dock and repair two shuttle tankers for Knutsen NYK Offshore Tankers AS.

The 88,109 tonne sister vessels Karen Knutsen and Sallie Knutsen are expected to arrive at the end of this month and the middle of March.

Jos Goris, managing director, Damen Brest, said: “We are very pleased with the order from Knutsen NYK Offshore Tankers. Shuttle tankers are delicate vessels and require a high level of operational reliability hence the selection criteria of a dry-docking will always be carefully considered by owners and operators.”

The shipyard currently has two Hyproc Shipping Company LNG carriers in the yard for extensive maintenance works, Italy-based Pertusola’s LPG carrier and Jan De Nul’s Simon Stevin for various modification works.
