Golden Energy Offshore chooses Ulstein PSVsVessel & ROV News // April 9, 2014
Golden Energy Offshore has entered into a shipbuilding contract with Nantong Rainbow Offshore & Engineering in China for the construction of two PX121H design PSVs from Ulstein Design.
The contract includes options to build two more vessels of the same design. The two confirmed vessels are due for delivery in the first and second quarter of 2016.
The PX121H design is customised with an extra, mezzanine deck. They have an overall length of 83.4m and a beam of 18m and a deadweight of 4,000 tonnes.
The vessels will be DP2 units with oil recovery and external firefighting equipment.
The medium-sized PSVs will have a cargo deck of approximately 850m2 and underdeck capacities well suited for the intended operations. They can accommodate up to 30 people and will be built according to IMO’s SPS code for Special Purpose Ships.
In addition, the vessels will be prepared for the installation of an AHC Crane with up to 67 tonnes capacity and an ROV mezzanine deck, which means the vessels can easily be configured for IMR work, plus ROV support, trenching and light subsea construction work.
