Damen PSV 3000 CD – six are on order for WWS

Damen Shipyards has announced that Norwegian company World Wide Supply (WWS) has ordered another two PSV 3300 CD PSVs, as an addition to the contract for four vessels announced in December 2011.

The extra PSVs are scheduled to be delivered by the end of 2013 and will be operated by Remøy Management. The PSV 3300 is designed according to the Dutch shipbuilding group's E3 principles, described as “environmentally friendly, efficient in operation and economically viable”. The design has been optimised for cost and fuel efficiency and emission-friendliness, taking into account such factors as hull shape, coatings, the location of oil tanks, refrigerants, recovery of waste heat and engine emissions.

According to Damen product director offshore Jan van Os: “We’ve aimed for a ‘workhorse’, a PSV with excellent seakeeping qualities, low maintenance and in line with the latest clean design and environmental protection requirements of the major classification societies. Also, it should be an efficient vessel for the crew to operate and to live on when at sea. As to maintenance, it should be low. For example, we’ve reduced the number of angles to achieve this. This has resulted in long smooth lines, which has a positive effect on the durability of coatings, reduces the formation of rust etc.”

Ståle Remøy, managing director of Remøy, says: “We are glad we have been able to achieve another two ships from Damen of this modern design. With the special wave piercing bow and the extremely slim waterlines, these ships will have an increased operational window, higher transit speed, reduced fuel consumption and increased crew comfort. The living quarters are developed according to strict demands for noise reduction, which also improves comfort and safety for the crew. We have a lot of faith in these new vessels and are looking forward to service the offshore market.”
