Damen and High Speed Transfers Ltd (HST) signed a contract for a third FCS 2710 fast crew supply vessel, for delivery in September this year. 

The FCS 2710 is the replacement for Damen’s FCS 2610 and was first shown to the world in July 2018 with HST as the lead customer. Effectively a complete redesign bringing with it a range of new capabilities and features, the FCS 2710 is capable of carrying twice as many passengers - 26 - as its predecessor and is also able to operate in wave heights of more than two meters due to an extra meter of freeboard.

This latest addition to the HST fleet, to be named HST Harri, will join the HST Hudson, delivered in July 2018, and the HST Sofia, which is scheduled for delivery in March 2019. Like the HST Sofia, the HST Harri will incorporate a few small layout changes to the working areas but otherwise the original specification remains unchanged.

Based in Swansea, Wales, HST is a recent entrant to the crew transfer market but is led by a highly experienced management team with extensive experience in the offshore transfer sector.
