CMM takes delivery of its first Damen PSV 3300
MONACO -- CMM has taken delivery of a Damen Platform Supply Vessel 3300. The 80m, 3,300t deadweight vessel CMM Gravity will be deployed in Brazilian waters from June 2014 on a 4+4 year contract with Petrobras.
For CMM, the vessel marks a further step in the company' s plans to expand in the offshore space and expand its offering by developing its capabilities as an OSV operator. This vessel will be compliant to Petrobras specifications, including Petrobras Annex V.
Next to the 728 sq m deck with a 1,500t deck load capacity, the vessel will feature extensive tank capacities to handle different types of fluids and bulk.
The vessel has a DP2 system which relies on four generator sets, two Azimuth thrusters and two bow thrusters. The 14-knot, 16.2m wide (moulded) vessel will be LR-classified for worldwide deployment.
The most remarkable feature includes the bulb-less axe bow as developed by Damen, and the bright red that CMM has selected for its corporate colour.
We are proud to have been awarded the Petrobras long-term charter contract,” CMM President Christophe Vancauwenbergh said. “Our goal is to be a proactive service provider with a focus on the ever more demanding needs of our clients in conjunction with delivering quality and technical sophistication. We therefore have sought the added value of an experienced top-shelf shipbuilder”,
“From this first order we hope that CMM will let us support their ambition to expand worldwide,” Rutger Dolk, Damen Sales Manager Americas said.
