‘World Peridot’ was handed over to WWS this week

Damen Shipyards Galati has handed over the second platform supply vessel (PSV) in a six series order heralding a new era in offshore construction for Damen Shipyards Group.

World Peridot, built to Damen’s innovative PSV 3300 design, features a radical design rethink, with a wave piercing bow, slender hull lines and diesel electric propulsion with azimuth stern drives combining to optimise seakeeping and fuel efficiency.

The 80.1m length, 1500 tonne deck capacity vessel features DP2 capability, and has been designed to Damen’s ‘E3’ principles - Environmentally friendly, efficient in operation and economically viable.

The vessel has been delivered to World Wide Supply (WWS) and comes just  seven weeks after the handover of the first of class PSV 3300, World Diamond. The new vessel will now join its sistership on the North Sea spot charter market.

The remaining four ships in the series have already secured long term charters offshore in Brazil.

Damen’s PSV300 is one of five PSV types available from Damen ranging from 1,500 dwt to 6,500 dwt. The group’s expanding offshore portfolio includes completely new designs for fast crew suppliers, anchor handling tug suppliers, a heavy lift vessel, ro-ro deep dredge vessel and the powerful new Damen offshore carrier 7500.
