Damen Shipyards Group and Homeland Integrated Offshore Services of Lagos have signed a contract in Singapore 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.
The 33-metre Patrol Vessel is based on Damen’s successful Fast Crew Supplier 3307, and so exhibits the same performance characteristics and superb fuel economy with a top speed of 30 knots, excellent manoeuvrability and first-class seakeeping thanks to its Axe Bow design. In addition to special features such as an armoured citadel protecting the wheelhouse, Homeland specifies a number of optional features for their vessels to extend their capabilities and maximise operability. Among these are a fast rescue craft, a Fuel Trax electronic fuel monitoring system and a redundant fuel separation system.
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.
