Jamaican Defence Force Takes Delivery of Stan Patrol 4207

Damen Services has delivered Damen SPa 4207, the second vessel in an order of four Damen vessels, to the Jamaica Defence Force Coast Guard. The vessel was officially handed over in Kingston, Jamaica.

Construction on the vessel began before the global pandemic struck. Due to restrictions on travel imposed by the pandemic, the vessel left Damen Song Cam Shipyard in Vietnam, not on her own keel as is usual for this model, but on board the BBC Congo, a heavy transport vessel.

The SPa 4207 was loaded in Hai Phong Harbour in June 2021. It arrived, just under two months later, in Kingston, Jamaica. “The successful delivery of this vessel really came down to teamwork, collaboration, and everybody’s willingness to be flexible in finding solutions to the challenges of these times,” Rimmert Berlijn, Service Coordinator, Delivery, Damen Heavy Lift, said. “It is always nice working with the JDF, and we are proud to continue our partnership with them”.

“The delivery of this vessel demonstrated the collaboration between and the adaptability of both the JDF and the Damen organizations.,” said Bram van der Plas, Damen’s Sales Manager, Caribbean. “Keeping operations running smoothly has been an all-hands-on-deck situation with team members around the world stepping up to offer ideas that keep us on-track for our clients.

The four-vessel contract between Damen and the JDF saw the delivery of a FCS 5009 Patrol in 2020. Another SPa 4207 and a second FCS 5009 Patrol will be delivered in the years to come. “Damen’s relationship with the JDF is one that is built on mutual trust and experience and we are proud to have successfully added another Damen vessel to their fleet,” added Bram van der Plas. “It has been quite a year, but clients have been flexible, and our teams have stepped up to the challenge of the moment to create solutions that help us ensure positive customer experiences and make sure our vessels continue to arrive in style.”
