Damen Shipyards Group announced on September 20, 2017, plans to establish a Service Hub in the Russian port of Novorossiysk. The primary aims of the Service Hub will be to optimise the services provided to the growing number of Damen vessels operating in the region of the Russian Black Sea.
The open-ended agreement states that cooperation between Damen and Delo Group regarding the new Service Hub will commence before the end of 2017.
The Letter of Intent was signed by representatives from the 2 companies during the NEVA 2017 trade fair in Saint Petersburg.
Damen Shipyard Group’s decision to set up the new Service Hub is based in part on the large number of Damen-built vessels that operate in the Black Sea area.
Currently more than 30 vessels that Damen built are operating in the region.
The new Service hub in Novorossiysk will be the next step in Russia to further professionalize the service delivered to Damen customers.
Having a Service Hub here will allow Damen to react very quickly to any service or maintenance issues, by which Damen ship owners can increase the uptime of their vessels.
This current number of Damen vessels operating in the area is set to increase in the coming months, as Delo Services takes delivery of 3 Damen ASD 2310 tugs in November.
Handover of a 4rth ASD 2310 is scheduled for 2018.
