New Damen Shoalbuster MAQTAA for SAFEEN

Damen 1

SAFEEN, the subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Ports formerly known as Abu Dhabi Marine Services, has taken delivery of a Damen Shoalbuster 2609 named MAQTAA to join its existing fleet.

Like all the vessels in Damen’s shoalbuster range she is a multi-purpose, shallow draught workboat capable of undertaking a wide range of roles including towing, mooring, pushing, anchor handling, dredge support, supplying and other support activities.

The order was placed by SAFEEN just two months ago.

The 26-meter shoalbuster will join an existing buoy maintenance vessel operated by SAFEEN called Al Shahama.

The latter was built in 1994 in Abu Dhabi under a Damen Technical Cooperation design and materials package. 22 years on, she is still in operation and in a very good condition.

The two vessels will work together when required.
