FSIV joins Pelican Offshore Services' fleetVessel & ROV News // March 11, 2011
Pelican Offshore Services, established in 1997, operates a fleet of Fast Supply Intervention Vessels (FSIV) as well as anchor handling tug/supply vessels in support of the offshore oil and gas industry of Southeast Asia. The company's fleet of FSIVs carry rig crews and light freight cargos. Working with their sister firm Penguin International, they have developed a fleet of their own designed Flex-36 high-speed aluminum vessels.
The most recent addition to the Pelican fleet is the 36m by 7.6m ABS-classed Pelican Grand. With a crew of eight and passenger capacity of 70 rig workers this design has proven an ideal size to meet industry requirements.
Combined with ample open aft deck area and tankage for water and fuel the vessel continues in the manner of her sisters in this well proven design.
The power package is also consistent with earlier deliveries. Three Cummins KTA38-M2 diesels each delivering 1,350hp at 1,900 rpm provide main propulsion power to five-blade propellers with a 1m diameter. A bow thruster is built in for added manoeuvrability. A pair of Cummins 6BT5.9 engines, each delivering 122hp at 1,500 rpm to 91 kW generators, meet the Pelican Grandís electrical needs.
