German Federal Office for Agriculture and Food Awards Damen Fisheries Research Vessel Contract

  (NETHERLANDS, 3/23/2017)

The German Federal Office for Agriculture and Food (Bundesanstalt für Landwirtschaft und Ernährung, BLE) has signed a contract with Damen Shipyards Group for the construction of a Fisheries Research Vessel.

The contract followed the successful result of a European tendering process, realized by the Federal Waterways Engineering and Research Institute (Bundesanstalt für Wasserbau, BAW). With the vessel, to be called the Walther Herwig, the German Federal Ministry for Food and Agriculture (BMEL) will support Germany’s fisheries and oceanographic research programmes. To this end, Damen will construct the Walther Herwig to the highest levels of scientific and environmental standards.

The Walther Herwig will be built at Damen Shipyards Galati in Romania to a design that has been finalised in cooperation with Norwegian ship designers Skipsteknisk. The expected delivery is January 2020.

Measuring 85 x 17,40 metres, the Walther Herwig will be the largest vessel in the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture’s fleet. Such dimensions will allow for accommodation for 26 crew and 26 scientists.

In terms of scientific facilities and equipment, the vessel will be outfitted with two hangars, wet and dry laboratory areas and trawling gear for both demersal and pelagic fisheries research. For physical and biological oceanographic studies, the vessel’s scientific teams will be able to utilise winches capable of relaying equipment to depths of up to 6,000 metres.

Talking at the contract signing ceremony at the BLE office in Hamburg, Damen Commercial Director North, West & South Europe Frank de Lange commented: “We are proud to have been awarded this prestigious contract for such an advanced research vessel."

"We are looking forward to continuing our close cooperation with representatives from the German Federal Office for Agriculture and Food during the construction process,” added de Lange
