Damen wins Multi-Cat order from Briggs Marine

Damen wins Multi-Cat order from Briggs Marine
Scotland-based offshore operator Briggs Marine has placed an order for a Damen Multi Cat 2712 for windfarm support, anchor handling and dredging.

Designated Forth Warrior, the 27 m-long 2712 is one of the largest models in Damen’s Multi Cat range, and provides deck space for carrying equipment, 360° visibility from the deckhouse, and a shallow draught for operations close to the shore.

Special equipment being installed on the vessel, which is due for June delivery, includes a DPS-1 system for use in activities such as windfarm support and a four-point mooring system for diving operations, featuring removable winches each capable of holding 320 m of wire.

This is the third vessel that Briggs Marine has purchased from Damen in recent years, following delivery of Forth Jouster Multi Cat 2611, and 62 m Anchor Handler Kingdom of Fife, being used on a £100 million company contract to provide maintenance and mooring support for the UK’s Royal Navy.
