APRIL 8, 2014 — Ålesund, Norway, headquartered Golden Energy Offshore has entered into a shipbuilding contract with Nantong Rainbow Offshore & Engineering Equipments Co., Ltd. (ROC) in China for the construction of two Ulstein PX121H Platform Supply Vessels (PSVs). The order includes an option for two more vessels of the same design. The two confirmed vessels are due for delivery from the shipyard in the first and second quarters of 2016.
The PX121H design vessels are customized with an extra deck.
They are medium size PSVs with an overall length of 83.4 m, a beam of 18 m and a deadweight of 4,000 tonnes. They have a cargo deck of approximately 850 square meters and under-deck capacities well suited for the intended operations. They can accommodate up to 30 persons, and will be built according to IMO’s SPS code for Special Purpose Ships.
In addition, the vessels will be prepared for the installation of an AHC Crane of up to 67 tonnes capacity and an ROV mezzanine deck, which means the vessels can easily be configured for IMR (Inspection, Maintenance, Repair), ROV support, trenching and light subsea construction work.
The vessels will be equipped with the most modern solutions for DP2 (dynamic positioning), oil recovery and fire-fighting.
"We look forward to working through and completing this project together with the yard and Ulstein," says Golden Energy Offshore CEO Per Ivar Fagervoll. "In addition to design, Ulstein also delivers a significant package including equipment, supervision, commissioning and testing, which has been instrumental and a condition for us to enter into this series of vessels. There is also other Norwegian equipment on-board including the accommodation interior package, delivered in accordance with Norwegian standards.”
