Damen Launches Nigerian LST

100m Vessel, With Capacity for 250 Marines, Slated for Delivery Next Year

A 100m Landing Ship Transport (LST) for the Nigerian Navy was launched recently by Albwardy Damen at Sharjah in the UAE. On completion, the roll-on/roll-off ship will accommodate a crew of 32 and an embarked contingent of 250 marines. It also has space for vehicles, a helicopter/UAS deck and can embark significant volumes of cargo via bow and stern ramps or a 25t-capacity crane.

These and other capabilities will enhance the Nigerian Navy’s ability to deploy troops and military hardware in support of maritime security operations, as well as the supply of relief material in the event of disasters or other crises. Overall, it will be a critical component of power projection for the enhancement of Nigeria’s maritime security at every level. The vessel is scheduled for delivery next year.

Damen offers a wide range of standardised LST vessels from 40-metres up to 120-metres, all fully customisable to meet the specific needs of each client.
