As of today, the 2nd of September 2014, Seacontractors and Damen have reached an agreement for the supply of two new 70 tons anchor handlers. These are the first Damen Stan tugs of the 3011 type, which come in addition to the current existing fleet of 8 Damen Shoalbusters. The basic Damen design has been customized into offshore anchor handlers with firefighting capabilities. The vessels are expected to be delivered in May 2015 by the Damen shipyard in Vietnam.
This innovative new concept is a new milestone for Seacontractors, fitting ideally into the fleet expansion strategy developed for the coming years.
