First PSV 3300 for WWS launched: ‘WORLD DIAMOND’
On January 18th, 2013, Damen Shipyards Galaţi (Romenia) has launched the World Diamond, the first of a series of six fully equipped Platform Supply Vessels for Norwegian offshore company World Wide Supply. The PSV 3300 series is part of Damen´s newly designed range of platform suppliers.
Like the other five ships, The World Diamond is built and completed in Galati in cooperation with Damen Shipyards Gorinchem (The Netherlands) which provides the design, engineering and main equipment.
Damen cooperates with a number of specialized suppliers and co-makers, respectively: Helmers (insulations, upholstery and furniture), Eekels (electrical equipment and installations), Den Breejen (painting and conservation’ and Johnson Control together with De Haan Galati (air conditioning and ventilation).
The main purpose of the vessel is transport of different cargoes (fuel, drinking water, salt brine, cement, barite, drilling mud, drilling pipes, etc.) and crews to and from offshore drilling rigs and production platforms in support of hydro carbon exploration and production activities. The PSV 3300 can also carry conventional containers on deck for diverse cargo. Furthermore, this DP2 platform supplier has fire-fighting capabilities and is provided with oil recovery equipment.
To reduce the environmental impact of its vessels and improve efficiency at the same time, Damen adheres to its E3 principles: Environmentally friendly, Efficient in operation and Economically viable. Combining the needs of the planet, the people operating the ship and the owner’s need to make a profit, the need for a new design emerged. Hull shape, coatings, the location of oil tanks, refrigerants, recovery of waste heat and engine emissions. The PSV 3300 CD fulfils the latest requirements of Clean Design and Environmental Protection standards of the major classification societies.
