Arctic route first for Damen stock boats
Saving up to eight days travel time was the attraction for Damen as the company’s second batch-shipment of tugs this year made a first for the company by using the Northern Sea route on its voyage from China to Rotterdam.
The MV Tasmanic Winter took the route along Russia’s north coast to deliver 24 new vessels built at Damen yards in Changde and Yichang. On board was a selection of Damen’s most popular tugs, the company’s now standard practice being to transport vessels in batches to the Netherlands where the majority will be ready for sale to customers seeking the shortest possible delivery times, including customisation when required.
In April, the SAL heavy lift vessel MV Lone arrived in Rotterdam from Shanghai with 11 Damen Pontoons on board ranging in size from 41 to 72 metres in length. Damen states that this form of transport is highly cost-effective for the company, enabling its clients to continue to receive the keenest pricing as well as Damen’s trademark quality, in the shortest possible delivery time. The use of the Northern Sea route is considered a major step forward in achieving Damen’s aims of significant reduction in delivery times.
