Damen's 8500-series offshore carrier wins OSJ Award
On 8th February at the Offshore Support Journal Annual Awards in London, the Maersk Connector received the Offshore Support Ship 2017 Award. The Maersk Supply Service owned vessel is the second of Damen Shipyards Group’s Offshore Carrier 8500 series and was awarded for setting an industry benchmark through its innovative design and efficiency in operation, the Group said Thursday in a press release. The Maersk Connector was built at Damen Shipyards Galati in Romania and delivered to Maersk Supply Service in 2016. Since then, she has been on long term charter with UK-based DeepOcean working on a number of projects. The design of the vessel, and her subsequent success, is the result of a close collaboration between the three parties.
