First Damen Service Operation Vessel Bibby WaveMaster 1 launched

Published in category: Offshore Oil & Gas

With the completion of the Bibby WaveMaster 1 bow and aft sections at the end of 2016 and a successful slipway launch held in March, the construction of the first ever Damen Service Operation Vessel (SOV) is now at full speed ahead.

The custom-designed, 90-metre length DP2 SOV for Bibby Marine Services is equipped with a motion compensated access system.

Other solutions include a heave compensated offshore-rated knuckle boom crane and the onboard capacity to host 90 personnel in ensuite Comfort Class 2 type accommodations.

Bibby WaveMaster 1, built at Damen Shipyards Galati, will be deployed in the North Sea to support future offshore wind construction and O&M projects and is planned for delivery in August 2017.
