Incat Crowther designs Brazil oilfield service vessels

ICAcrewboatAPRIL 11, 2013 — Incat Crowther has been awarded contracts to design two types of new fast oilfield service vessels for Arpoador Engenharia of Brazil. One is 36 m monohull crewboat that will meet the Petrobras type P2 specification and the second is a 48 m monohull fast supply vessel that will comply with the Petrobras type UT4000 specification.

36 m crewboat

The 36 m design has an aft main deck with 60.5 sq.m dedicated to a man-riding basket, and 28 sq.m for cargo. Forward of this is the passenger cabin with 60 seats in a mixture of forward-facing and booth styles. Ample luggage storage is also provided, along with a pair of heads. A bow loading platform is integrated into the design to facilitate passenger embarking and disembarking from offshore facilities. Stairs lead to the upper deck wheelhouse, and down to the hull where crew are accommodated in 5 cabins. Galley, mess and bathrooms are also to be fitted in the hulls.

The vessel will be fitted with three Caterpillar C32 main engines coupled to Doen DJ290 waterjets. The center engine will drive a 600 cu.m/hour fire pump. All main engines and generator sets are serviced by soft patches over.

The vessel will be capable of speeds in excess of 25 knots, with a fully loaded service speed of 17 knots.
