Dutch Damen Shipyards has received an order to deliver two fast crew supply vessels to its Mexican client Naviera Integral.
The contract signing ceremony was held earlier today during the Offshore Energy 2014 event, in the Amsterdam RAI, the Netherlands.
Under the contract, Damen will deliver two vessels of their newly launched Fast Crew Supplier 4008 series.
The fast crew suppliers will have their hulls built in Poland, and the outfitting and finishing works will be done in the Netherlands.
Kommer Damen, chairman of Damen Shipyards Group, and Juan Pablo Vega Arriaga, chairman of Naviera Integral, put pen to paper on the contracts today at the Damen Shipyards stand at the Offshore Energy 2014 Conference & Exhibition.
The vessels, of 41.20 m length o.a., will be delivered in 2016. The units will be operating in the Mexican part of the Gulf of Mexico, taking crews to offshore oil rigs and platforms.
The new Fast Crew Supplier 4008 series will offer accommodation for 90 passengers.
