CONTAINER SHIPS: Newbuilds for OOCL

On 18 January Damen Shipyard Galati (Romania) launched the 80.1m World Diamond, the first 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, World Diamond was built and completed in Galati in cooperation with Damen Shipyards Gorinchem (The Netherlands).

The new vessel will transport a variety of cargoes and crews to and from offshore drilling rigs and production platforms in support of hydro-carbon exploration and production activities. The PSV 3300, which has a speed of 13.7 knots, can also carry conventional containers on deck. With its hull shape, coatings, oil tanks, recovery of waste heat and engine emissions, the PSV 3300 CD fulfils the latest Environmental Protection standards of the major classification societies.
