The official christening of the World Sapphire marks the completion of a six-ship order whereby Damen Shipyards has delivered six Platform Supply Vessels (PSVs) to Norwegian company World Wide Supply (WWS) AS in just six months. The Damen PSV 3300 features a radical design rethink, with a wave piercing bow, slender hull lines and diesel electric propulsion with azimuth stern drives, combining to optimize seakeeping and fuel efficiency. The 80.1 m, 1,500-metric-ton deck capacity vessel also has DP2 capability. Jostein Sætrenes, Chief Executive Officer of World Wide Supply AS, commented, “Damen was able to deliver six vessels between June 28 and December 17, which is impressive.” Sætrenes is pleased to see that all six vessels will be under contract during the second quarter, four of them being on long-term charters to Brazilian energy giant Petrobras. He reflected on the completion of the six-vessel series and why the new offshore company chose Damen Shipyards as a partner.  “We wanted a vessel for today and for the future. We gave the designers and engineers involved in the project the mandate that the vessels should have a modern look but embody proven technology. The new PSV had to be able to realize our expectations for the offshore market of the future.
