Damen adds full-electric workboat to portfolio
Damen Shipyards Group has announced the introduction of a full-electric workboat, the MuC 1908 E, to its portfolio. The multi-purpose workboat, based on Damen’s Multi Cat 1908 design, extends Damen’s range of zero-emission products into the workboat segment.
The product launch was made at the Seawork exhibition in Southampton on 13 June.
The vessel has been designed to undertake diverse tasks including pushing, towing, anchor handling, buoy recovery, surveying, bunker supply, waste/oil recovery and support duties.
The design includes an energy storage system capable of sustaining operations inland, in harbour and along the coast, up to 20 nautical miles from shore, for up to 12 hours. The batteries are, additionally, able to power the vessel for up to a decade following delivery.
