The vessel also has deck space for vehicles, a helicopter/UAV deck and significant space for cargo, which can be loaded via both a stern and a bow ramp or using the 25-tonne main crane.

These and other capabilities are designed to enhance the Nigerian Navy’s ability to deploy troops and military hardware and vehicles in support of maritime security operations, as well as the supply of relief material in the event of disasters or other crises.

Damen was selected to deliver the project for the Nigerian Navy based on the company's shipbuilding track record, to be capable of meeting challenging time frames and disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Damen Shipyards Group has been in operation for over 90 years and offers maritime solutions worldwide, through design, construction, conversion and repair of ships and ship components.

The company offers a wide range of standardised LST vessels from 40 metres up to 120 metres, all fully customisable to meet the specific needs of each client.
