Damen Shiprepair Brest, recently selected for two shuttle tanker drydockings

Damen Shiprepair’s French yard in Brest was booked for the dry-docking and repairs of two shuttle tankers managed by Knutsen NYK Offshore Tankers.

88,109grt sister vessels Karen Knutsen and Sallie Knutsen were scheduled for the end of February and middle of March respectively.

Damen Brest MD Jos Goris 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. We are known for our highly qualified and trained mechanical department and surely this has been taken into consideration by owners in the decision making process”

Other recent jobs at the yard included two Hyproc Shipping Company LNG carriers for extensive maintenance works, while vessels undergoing modification included Italian-owned LPG carrier Pertusola and Jan De Nul’s fallpipe and rock dumping vessel Simon Stevin.
