For a customer in the Middle East, Damen has been involved in the design, engineering, construction and delivery of two Offshore Patrol Vessels.
Based on the operational profile of the vessels, Damen delivered an Integrated Logistic Support package. The programme included extensive operator training, both at OEM premises and on board the vessels at the building yard. A separate maintenance training for the shore-based maintenance crew has been developed. All maintenance tasks have been analysed and merged into a tailor-made maintenance plan supporting the lifecycle of the ships.
Damen performed systems maintenance during the installation of the weapons systems. Comprehensive documentation with Vessel Operating Manuals and quick reference cards ensure that the crew has all information on board about operation of the systems available at all times.
Damen has tailored an on board spares package based on the operational profile of the vessels as well as an additional base, on-shore spares package. With the delivery of this package, the customer is able to ensure availability of its vessels.
