APRIL 9, 2014 — A series of ten platform supply vessels on order at Shipyard De Hoop in the Netherlands will be equipped with navigation and communication equipment supplied by Aage Hempel Netherlands, including Kelvin Hughes Integrated Bridge Systems.
As we reported earlier, the 65 m x 15.8 m PSVs are being built for Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).
The first vessel is to be delivered early 2015, whilst the delivery of the other 9 vessels is equally spread over almost 1.5 years, with the last PSV to be handed over at the end of 2016. Production of vessels will be split between the De Hoop's Lobith and Foxhol shipyards.
The vessels will operate in the offshore oil and gas fields of the United Arab Emirates, under the operating company ESNAAD, which is a member of the ADNOC Group.
