GPS Marine opts for Damen Stan Pontoon

Damen Trading has recently sold a stock Damen Stan Pontoon (SPo) 6316 to its client GPS Marine Holding BV in Hulst, the Netherlands.


The customer was looking for delivery of a flat-top barge in quick time in order to participate in a project taking place in the IJselmeer lake in the north of the Netherlands.

With Damen’s practice of building vessels in series and for stock, the shipbuilder was able to deliver the vessel within two weeks of signing the contract.

GPS Marine Holding BV is a fully-owned subsidiary of GPS Marine Holdings, the Upnor, UK-based marine contractor offering a range of service including civil engineering and construction, backhoe, plough dredging, marine and offshore demolition, international coastal and harbor towage, transport of goods by barge, diving and sub-surface engineering.

The company already operates a number of Damen vessels in its fleet – two SPo 6020, an SPo 3011, two Stan Tug 1606s and a Shoalbuster 2709.

Damen Trading is a part of Damen Marine Services, specializing in the sale, purchase and chartering of any type of used vessel.
