Albwardy Damen receives MASTECH award for new Damen Multibuster 8020
Albwardy Damen has received an award for its design of the new Damen Multibuster 8020 shallow draught, multi-purpose vessel. The award was presented at the MASTECH International Marine Technical Conference, held on board the iconic QE2 floating hotel in the UAE.
Albwardy Damen has been developing the Multibuster 8020 for the past two years in close consultation with a number of oil majors and vessel operators. The vessel will also be available in 60 and 70 metre versions.
Its draught of just 3.5 metres makes it ideal for the shallow waters of the Arabian Gulf as well as elsewhere in the world.
“At Damen we have been extremely successful with shallow draught workboats,” says Pascal Slingerland, regional director Middle East for Damen. “The new Multibuster is a combination of the functionality found on both Shoalbusters and Multi Cats, but on a much larger and even more versatile, shallow draught workboat.”
