Damen Shipyards Group and Sydney City Marine have begun a cooperation agreement for the repair and maintenance of Damen-built vessels in Australia and New Zealand.
The partnership lays the groundwork for the expansion of Damen’s services network in Australia, the company said in a statement.
The MOU’s principle agreement states that Sydney City Marine will perform repair and maintenance works of Damen vessels. This will involve scope such as steel works, painting, boiler making, pipefitting and carpentry, in addition to the supply of construction materials.
Damen’s will provide technical assistance, engineering capacity, parts and equipment.
Sydney City Marine’s shipyard has deep water access and an 800-tonne capacity ship lift. Covered and open repair facilities can accommodate vessels up to 60 metres in length.
