Damen has delivered a new fast crew supply vessel to High Speed Transfers.
HST Hudson will primarily work in the offshore transfers sector based in Swansea, Wales.
The new vessel’s model is a successor vessel to a previous Damen design.
It retains the twin hull, axe bow design but is one metre longer and higher than its predecessor. That, plus a complete redesign of the interior, allows it to carry twice as many passengers as its predecessor.
The extra metre above the water also allows the vessel to operate in wave heights of above two metres.
This substantially increases the range of weather conditions in which it can be at sea.
