In January 2014, an order was placed with Damen Shipyards Group for 2 Platform Supply Vessels (PSV).
This second vessel, Mamola Defender, is expected to be operational in the same region. The naming ceremony of the vessel took place on 23 September 2015.
Both vessels are at the forefront of technology in terms of equipment. The PSV 3300 design ensures reliability, excellent seakeeping behaviour and low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions – crucial features for the offshore market.
During the construction of the vessel, PROMAR had a team based in Romania to supervise the project with Damen Shipyards Galati.
According to Jerome Bouchardy, Head of Projects and Commercial Manager at PROMAR:
"There was a fruitful collaboration between the PROMAR team and Damen. Thanks to the great professionalism of all teams, as well as Damen’s excellent production capabilities, the project went well and was delivered on time. We are very proud to manage such a beautiful vessel. Like her Sister ship, Mamola Reliance, she has been designed and built to fulfill the highest requirements of the offshore industry. She features a broad package of options and is SPS compliant, offering therefore additional flexibility for clients.”
The Christening ceremony for Mamola Defender has taken place in Barcelona with official representation from Damen, PROMAR and the ship-owners.
PROMAR, with headquarters in Switzerland, manage a fleet of Multi-Purpose Supply Vessels and Fast Crew Boats which serve the global offshore marine industry.
