On 28 March, SeaZip Offshore Service named two new Damen Fast Crew Suppliers (FCS) 2610 at Damen Shipyards Gorinchem. The two vessels, named SeaZip 3 and SeaZip 4, will expand their owner’s offshore wind farm support capacity in the North Sea region.
SeaZip 3 and SeaZip 4 can be described as the Mark II version of Damen’s renowned FCS 2610. Responding to industry feedback, Damen has lengthened the wheelhouse and located the accommodation closer to the stern. “Passengers have their own space upstairs in the wheelhouse while downstairs there are 3 cabins and a small galley for the crew,” explains Damen Sales Manager Benelux Roel van Eijle.
For its new vessels, SeaZip Offshore Service also selected some of Damen’s standard options – a foredeck moonpool to enable hydrographic surveys and extra fendering on the sides offering additional protection.
