Damen Shipyards Group has recently signed a contract for the delivery of a pontoon to France-based company, Marc SA. The contract is a significant one for Damen, being the 100th order for a pontoon since the company opened its dedicated Pontoons & Barges product department in 2010.

The client, is a leading civil works company in Brittany, located in Brest, Roscoff, Cherbourg and Lorient and serves the urban, rural, road, rail, maritime, industrial and environmental sectors. Marc uses pontoons to carry out its scope of work in the maritime arena, which includes harbor and quayside projects. When Marc was looking to upgrade its pontoon fleet, it approached Damen, as Damen sales manager Alexandre Richerd explains: "We already had an existing relationship with Marc; the company is very active in Brest and their pontoons sometimes visit Damen Shiprepair Brest for works and we have hired their pontoons to assist on projects on occasion."

The pontoon will also be used by the Société Cooperatives des Lamaneurs des Ports de BREST et de ROSCOFF, a cooperative society responsible for the berthing, docking and undocking of commercial vessels in the ports of Brest. The region is generally experiencing an increase in civil works projects, combined with the navy and marine renewables activity in the Port of Brest, that has signaled an increase in use of pontoons.

Damen will deliver the 100th pontoon to Marc in spring 2020.

Damen builds pontoons for stock from 12 - 145 meters. The stock pontoons are built to proven designs and kept at strategic locations to ensure fast delivery.
