M/V Hezekiah M/V Hezekiah

JULY 14, 2016 — Incat Crowther America, Lafayette, LA, reports that the Veecraft Marine shipyard in in Cape Town, South Africa, has completed two 35 m offshore security patrol vessels — M/V Hezekiah and M/V Lady Dora — for an undisclosed client in Lagos, Nigeria.

Classed by Bureau Veritas (BV), they are slated to provide surveillance, intervention and protection to offshore assets of Nigerian AGIP Exploration (NAE) located in the Gulf of Guinea. They vessels are also capable of providing replenishment of crews, fuel, and potable water to NAE offshore facilities.

The vessels have a service speed of 25 knots. Propulsive power for each is supplied by three Caterpillar C32 ACERT engines, each producing 1,450 hp at 2,300 rpm, driving Teinbridge fixed pitch propellers through ZF 3050 gearboxes.  Electrical power is provided by two Caterpillar C4.4 generators and maneuverability is enhanced by a Hydro Armor Type 800 bow thruster.

The accommodations provide generous space for a complement of 22 crew and security personnel as well as 15 passengers. Included in the accommodations are eleven staterooms, five heads, a medical room, galley, crew lounge, mess area, laundry space, and a walk-in cooler.

External decks provide plenty of space for transportation of supplies and also include armored positions for weapons installations.

The aft portion of the hull is fitted with an integrated RHIB well with a hydraulically actuated transom door for easy deployment of an 8 m fast rescue craft.

The pilothouse is constructed of ballistic resistant steel and windows to provide protection to NIJ Level III.
