GORINCHEM, the Netherlands – L.A.T Cleveson (LATC) has contracted Damen Shipyards Group to supply two PSV 3300 platform supply vessels and two FCS 5009 fast crew supplier vessels for use off Nigeria and in the Gulf of Guinea.

The PSVs and FCSs will have the full support of the Damen Service Hub in Port Harcourt, as well as the Damen Regional Office in Lagos. An additional Service Hub in Ghana is being planned.

Gbolahan Shaba, COO of LATC Marine said: “Our aim is to redefine the concept of quality tonnage in the Gulf of Guinea and particularly in Nigeria. We plan to locally develop the necessary skill sets that will sustain our quality service to the most demanding clientele who run very complex operations in the most challenging environments.”
