ANCHOR HANDLER: Damen’s new design

In February Damen Shipyards Group introduced its newly-designed Damen AHTS 200 (pictured), a deepwater Anchor Handling Tug Supplier able to operate in water depths in excess of 3,000m. The AHTS 200 is the latest addition to the Damen Offshore Series.

The vessel is intended to have a bollard pull of 200-250t and is fitted with engines in a father-son layout, featuring twin-in single-out gearboxes driving CP propellers in a nozzle. High-performance flap-type rudders, fitted to rotary vane steering gears, provide a high degree of manoeuvrability, supported by good side thrust capacity, including tunnel thrusters as well as retractable thrusters in fore and aft ship. The design is intended to be able to accommodate up to 45 persons in single and double cabins. No orders have yet been placed by possible clients.
