Damen Presents New AHTS 200 Design at SMM (Germany)

Dutch shipbuilder Damen Shipyards has, at the SMM 2012 in Hamburg, presented its new Anchor Handling Tug Supply Vessel design, the AHTS 200.

The anchor handler, a 200 ton bollard pull vessel, is one of several designs presented by Damen at one of the biggest maritime industry events in the world, the SMM 2012.

It has a large work deck, high-end deck equipment, an extensive winch layout as well as ROV support capabilities.

The AHTS 200, suitable for deep water operation up to 3000 meters, is equipped with an innovative electrically driven deepwater winch package. The company explains that the benefits of using electric winches is that they need limited maintenance and are highly efficient because they use less energy conversion steps, which lowers emissions and operational costs.

The hull of the vessel has slender lines optimized for low resistance figures while the straight frames in the fore body reduce slamming forces and de-acceleration levels.

Furthermore, the anchor handler of 89.10 Length o.a is a suitable platform for additional features such as: Fire Fightning, Oil Recovery, Diving Support, Subsea construction.

Arnout Damen, COO of Damen Shipyards group commented: “For Damen, the SMM has been one of the most important events for years. Considering the quality of SMM´s visitors, we´ve decided to introduce several new vessels and developments here, where it counts.”
