Design

  1. Fuel efficiency

    This Offshore Carrier replaces the well known tug barge operations, with a multi role, multi tasking vessel, giving the opportunity to combine fuel efficiency (both heavy oil and gasoil) with speed and power as required.

  2. Excellent Seakeeping behaviour

    Tested in various sea-conditions and with the requirements for enhanced DP2 the vessel shows an excellent seakeeping behaviour. With crew comfort and cargo limitations in mind accellerations are reduced by the hull form and its seakeeping ability. Well tested and documented the vessel is an ideal platform for offshore operations.

  3. Large unobstructed deck

    Large unobstructed deck: a flat deck with loading up to 20 tons/m² and on specific positions up to 200 tons this vessel is the mule of the fleet.

Innovation

DP2 SYSTEM

Damen Offshore Carrier DP 2 System

The DOC fulfils the latest market demands in that it can be equipped with a DP2 system. This makes the DOC extremely stable, ensuring safe loading/unloading operations offshore. DP2 operation can be optimised by installing additional retractable bow thrusters and/or additional installed power.

COST EFFICIENT & DRAMATIC REDUCTIONS IN FUEL CONSUMPTION

Cost Efficiency With an endurance of up to 65 days, economic fuel consumption and the possibility to run on HFO380 or LNG (Dual Fuel), the DOC is a very cost effective vessel.

Damen set out to create a vessel that is able to carry modules and cargo on an open deck for long distances, in line with the demands of today’s market. The vessel also provides an effective alternative to the usual method of transportation using a tug and barge.

Damen Research & Development specifically looked at the advantages of the DOC compared to a tug/barge combination and found that fuel consumption is reduced by a staggering 25%.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

Environmental Protection 

The DOC can be equipped with LNG propulsion, using fixed or containerised LNG storage tanks. The fuel tanks are protected with cofferdams and the vessel has a Zero Dumping Certification.

Scrubbers are optional for those wishing to gain the benefits of HFO sailing and reduced emissions.
