Damen wins Nigerian orders

Rotterdam: Africa-focused proprietary investment firm L.A.T Cleveson (LATC) has signed an order with Damen Shipyards Group for the supply of two PSV 3300 platform supply vessels (PSVs) and two FCS 5009 fast supplier vessels (FSVs).

The purchase is being made by LATC Marine, a subsidiary of L.A.T Cleveson, and has been financed by fellow Nigerian firm, Fidelity Bank

Gbolahan Shaba, COO of LATC Marine, commented: “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. Ultimately, our strategy is to attain the capacity to build and maintain quality tonnage in Nigeria. We anticipate strong demand for repair and docking services in our region and we plan to create the facilities to meet that demand, professionally and safely.”
