Damen Presents Design of New Class Utility Vessel

Dutch shipbuilder Damen has unveiled the design of the first of a new class of Damen utility vessel UV2410, which is expected to start construction shortly.

The main requirements for the new Utility Vessel 2410 were that its length does not exceed 24 meters and that it fits within the 200 gross tonnage limit, based on the conclusions of the consultation with stakeholders active in the aquaculture industry in the UK and Norway, Damen said.

“With the wide beam of 9.5 meters and minimal superstructure this vessel provides 120 m² of unobstructed deck space, yet still has comfortable accommodation for up to six crew,” Lodewijk van Os, Product Director Workboats explains.

The vessel’s design is optimized for maintenance support, oil recovery, diving support, buoy handling, safety stand-by, ROV support and surveying, according to Damen.

“It is also ideal for aquaculture, with easy access to the waterline amidships via steps and a three-meter opening in the bulwark, and the capability of mounting dedicated equipment including up to two cranes,” Van Os adds.

Damen says that the 2410 would be useful to port authorities, governmental organizations, marine contractors and anyone involved in water-based maintenance operations.
