Homeland Integrated Offshore Services extends fleet of Damen 3307 Patrol Vessels
Damen Shipyards Group and Homeland Integrated Offshore Services of Lagos have signed a contract for the delivery of two additional Damen 3307 Patrol Vessels. This further increases the total number of these vessels in the Homeland fleet with the first ordered in 2014 and the most recent deliveries being three vessels over the course of 2018.
Like their sister-ships, the two latest additions will be able to accommodate up to eight security personnel together with their equipment alongside the six crew and fifteen seats for crew transfers. Damen is also supplying training and maintenance services with integral knowledge and technology transfers.
This latest order demonstrates Homeland’s continuing commitment to maintaining its leadership position in servicing Nigeria’s offshore oil & gas sector by investing in state-of-the-art equipment that rivals that to be found anywhere in the world.
Led by Managing Director Dr Louis Ekere, the company works with many of the international oil companies (IOCs) operating actively in the region.
In response to this latest order he commented:
We work closely with our clients to achieve their strategic objectives by providing exceptional services to enable them to focus on their core operations.
