Pakistan Customs has taken delivery of two Damen Stan Patrol 1605 FRP patrol boats in a handover ceremony at Karachi Shipyard & Engineering Works Ltd (KS&EW) on March 10.
The vessels were built by KS&EW with technical and material support from Damen. The patrolling boats shall be used for monitoring and enforcement activities in Pakistan’s territorial waters.
KS&EW received the order for the two Stan Patrol 1605 FRP (Fibre Reinforced Polymer) craft from the Pakistan Customs in July last year. The bid was supported by Damen’s Technical Cooperation (DTC) programme, which cooperates with shipyards around the world. Damen supplied prefabricated material kits along with the hulls to KS&EW.
“It has been a great pleasure working with KS&EW once again,” said sales manager Teun Haverkort. “Our two companies have built a close relationship over the years and together we have combined Pakistan craftsmanship and Damen expertise to deliver a series of advanced vessels to leading Pakistan organisations. This latest project has been a great success and we look forward to cooperating again in the near future. We offer a wide variety of proven vessels under the DTC programme, ideal for all types of port and terminal, security and dredging activities”.
