Damen Shiprepair Brest (France) received a booking for the dry-docking and repairs of two shuttle tankers managed by Knutsen NYK Offshore Tankers A/S. The 88,109 GRT sister vessels Karen Knutsen and Sallie Knutsen expect to arrive end February and Middle of March respectively.
Damen Brest’s Managing Director Jos Goris commented: “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 happy to see that Knutsen NYK Offshore Tankers has chosen for Damen Shiprepair Brest.” Mr. Goris continues: “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”.
