Three Twin Axe Fast Crew Suppliers for Maritime Craft Services

Three Damen Twin Axe Fast Crew Suppliers are on their way to Maritime Craft Services (MCS) and are expected to arrive in Europe in early May. Based in Largs, Ayrshire, MCS ordered the three Twin Axe FCSs 2610, just months after taking delivery of its first two catamarans. All of the vessels are deployed in supporting offshore wind farms and in maintenance activities.

The Scottish firm operates a fleet of nineteen tugs and workboats internationally and already has several Damen vessels including Multi Cats and Shoalbusters. MCS has been active in the offshore wind market for many years but decided to enter the crew transfer market in 2011.

Five Vessels

The company’s first Twin Axe FCSs 2610, MCS Sirocco was delivered in June 2012 and the second, MCS Pampero, in December last year. The three new vessels, MCS Boreas, MCS Blue Norther and MCS Levanto are sister vessels to MCS Pampero.

All the vessels have been built by Damen Shipyards Singapore.
