BBC helps Damen deliver dredgers

February 7 - Dutch shipbuilder, Damen Shipyards, has used a vessel specially chartered by BBC Chartering to deliver three cutter suction dredgers to Azerbaijan.

The three dredgers were dismantled at the yard of Damen Dredging Equipment in Nijkerk, the Netherlands and transported by truck to Antwerp, where they were loaded onto the chartered ship, Volgo Balt 246 and transported to Baku.

The three ships were delivered to the Ministry of Emergency Situations (MES) in Azerbaijan where they will be used to clean-up, deepen and maintain the Kura River water system.

Damen's philosophy of series production and delivery from stock made it possible to build, outfit, deliver and commission all three dredgers within six months after the contract became effective.
