Damn Shiprepair Rotterdam has redelivered seven container vessels to Hamburg Süd, after installing the Becker Twisted Fin on each one.
The Damen Shipyards Group subsidiary won the contract to retrofit the vessels in October 2012. The Becker Twisted Fin was developed to improve the performance of the vessel in combination with the propeller and the aft body of the vessel.
Damen Shiprepair Brest, the French repair yard subsidiary, has also been contracted for the regular dry docking and special survey for two CMA CGM container vessels, Fort Ste. Marie and Fort St. Louis. An option for Fort St. Pierre and Fort St. Georges has also been discussed.
Additionally, Damen Shipyards Group has delivered Shoalbuster 3209 Coastal Voyager to Acta marine in Amsterdam. The multipurpose vessel was custom-built for dredging and marine contracting projects and will be deployed for offshore wind farm projects in the North Sea. The Netherlands-based marine services provider already owns five Shoalbuster vessels.
