    Vessel & ROV News // January 7, 2014

    A Focal 528, a large PSV design by Focal Marine & Offshore, is to be built for an as yet unspecified West African owner. Two examples of the design will be built at Yuexin Ocean Engineering.

    The Focal 528 is a multi-purpose PSV design with 86m LOA/5,000 tonnes deadweight, 1,000m2 deck cargo area, complement of 80 and is designed for carriage of multiple cargoes of fuel oil, base oil, fresh water, mud/brine, dry bulk and methanol.

    In addition, the design also has oil recovery notation without limitation on flash point of recovered oil, and safety standby/rescue notation by ABS.

    The design is also ready for the installation of an AHC crane and helideck, and has a built-in moonpool, enabling the vessel to be operated as subsea support vessel if required.

    The design also complies with latest regulations including SPS 2008 and MLC 2006.
