'Ship of the Year' built by STX OSVVessel & ROV News // September 11, 2012
STX OSV Holdings Limited has confirmed that the platform supply vessel Far Solitaire, built by STX OSV Langsten in Norway for Farstad Supply, was elected 'Ship of the Year 2012' by the readers of the Norwegian shipping magazine Skipsrevyen.
Far Solitaire, of Rolls-Royce’s UT 754WP design, is a chemical tanker compliant supply vessel according to IBC code 2. The fact that the vessel complies with the Code was the main reason the jury elected the vessel as Ship of the Year.
The technologically advanced vessel was developed by Farstad Shipping in close co-operation with Rolls-Royce Marine and is the first PSV of this type ever built.
Delivery will take place from STX OSV Langsten in October.
