New Deliveries from Damen Shipyards Hardinxveld

Posted on September 14, 2005

Damen Shipyards Hardinxveld has deliverd two shallow draft Multi Cat 1908 workbat vessels named CS Marine and CS Carmen to Coastal Shipping where they will be used for anchor handling, dredger service, supply, towing, hose handling and survey activities. The 19 meter vessels are powered by twin Caterpillar 3406C-TA dueseks rated 596 bkW each at 1800 r/min. The engines drive twin fixed pitch propellers in nozzles through twin Reintjes WAF 144 3.522:1 gearboxes.

The vessels will be deployed in the Caspian Sea on a long term contract, supporting the local oil- and gas industry. Because of the local conditions the draft is limited to 1.00 meter and despite this limited draft, the vessels have a bollard pull in excess of 9 tons.
