    Miclyn Express Offshore lays keel for new PSV series

    Vessel & ROV News // August 21, 2012

    Miclyn Express Offshore (MEO) has laid the keel of the first of a new series of 2,000t dwt PSVs at its Batam-based PT Loh & Loh shipyard.

    MEO initially ordered two vessels of the same design, with the potential to build more in the series at a later date.

    MEO has chosen to build the vessels to fill the gap in the aging and under-invested sub-category of the PSV market.

    Focal Marine was selected as designers for this project and has worked closely with MEO to develop a vessel which is highly versatile to match a diverse market.

    The vessels will use a full Niigata package for propulsion including azimuth drives for main propulsion, which combined with two 10 tonne tunnel thrusters, will provide a solid DP footprint for the vessels when operating in ROV support functions.

    To fully benefit from the opportunities provided by a strong DP configuration, the vessel is also SPS 2008 compliant with a total accommodation for 60 persons and 500m2 of clear deck area space.

    Good capacity for dry bulk and bulk liquids (muds, brine, drill water, fuel) with a dedicated integral tank of 80m3 for methanol is also available.
