DAMEN TO BUILD VESSEL FOR PORT AUTHORITY OF JAMAICA

Monday, September 30, 2019 

Damen Shipyards Group has signed a contract with the Port Authority of Jamaica (PAJAM) for the delivery of a Utility Vessel 3911, to provide buoy-laying and maintenance support operations in the ports of the island nation.

Damen has a long relationship with PAJAM, stretching back to the 1990s, when the port authority placed orders with Damen for two Stan Tugs 2909. This was followed, more recently, by orders for two Pilot Vessels 1605.

Damen sales manager Alan Borde said: “We were very pleased to receive this order from PAJAM as it confirms their satisfaction with the previous deliveries. We enjoy a good and long-standing relationship that contributes significantly to ensuring the success of the vessels. I am looking forward to working again with PAJAM on the construction of this new vessel.”

The UV 3911 is a 39.4m x 10.8m vessel built to facilitate a crew of twelve. It will feature an A-frame with a 50 tonne capability and a towing winch, remotely operable from the wheelhouse. It will be outfitted at Damen Maaskant Shipyard Stellendam in the Netherlands. Its delivery is scheduled for Q1-Q2 2021.
