Damen patrol boats delivered in Nigeria

16th May 2016 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Damen has delivered four Stan Patrol 1605 ballistic protected security patrol vessels to C&I Leasing of Nigeria, the company announced on 13 May.

The vessels will be used to provide security patrol and escort services for LNG tankers travelling in and out of the Nigerian LNG (NLNG) Bonny terminal.

The Damen 1605 patrol vessel is a 16m vessel built with aluminium hull and GRP composite superstructures. The accommodation has been additionally clad with bullet-proof materials to add greater protection for personnel. The vessel is equipped with upgraded water jets and engines. 

C&I Leasing is contracted to perform maritime security work for the NLNG terminal under a five-year contract signed in 2014. 

The vessels, which were fitted out at Damen Shipyards Gorinchem, were delivered in April as part of a package that also included an eight metre rigid hull inflatable boat (RHIB) for up to 10 passengers. Damen will support the vessels from its service hub in Port Harcourt.

Wisdom Nwagwu, general manager, C&I Leasing, said: ‘We strongly believe that our partnership with Damen will continually place us in a position to play a key role in the Nigerian marine sector.’
