    Vard signs LoI with Simon Møkster Shipping

    Yard News // April 24, 2013

    Vard Holdings Limited has entered into a Letter of Intent (LoI) with Simon Møkster Shipping for the design and construction of a PSV.

    The shipbuilding contract for the design and construction of the vessel is expected to be entered into within a few weeks.

    The vessel, of Vard’s own PSV 06 LNG design, is scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2015 and will be built by Vard in Norway. The hull will be delivered from Vard in Romania.

    The PSV 06 LNG will be a Clean Design, environmentally friendly dual-fuel LNG/diesel-electric ship with a focus on low fuel consumption and low emissions.

    The vessel will be approximately 94m long with a breadth of 20m and is designed to meet the requirements for support to the Goliat oil and gas field in the Barents Sea.

    Simon Møkster Shipping has been awarded a charter contract by oil major Eni Norge for the operation of the vessel. In addition to regular PSV duties, the vessel is equipped for emergency operations such as rescue, emergency towing, firefighting and oil recovery.

    At the stern of the vessel, a hangar will be fitted to accommodate an emergency towing winch, NOFO oil recovery equipment and a slipway for launch and recovery of the rescue craft.
