De Hoop at Eemshaven 15/07/2015 : In 2013 Esnaad awarded Shipyard DeHoop with an order for ten state of the art PSV ( Platform Supply Vessels). Despite the vigorous international competition, DeHoop won the prestigious contract as result of their technically advanced design and competitive terms. Whist the complete production of the vessels is equally split between the two facilities in Lobith and Foxhol, the delivery is spread over almost two years, with the last PSV to be handed over in 2017. The first vessel with YN 470 named Esnaad 221, was delivered to Esnaad, the operating company o f the ADNOC group, on the 15th of July 2015.
