    Farstad takes delivery of Melinda

    Vessel & ROV News // October 10, 2003
    Farstad's latest newbuild Multi Purpose UT755L Lady Melinda was delivered last month. The vessel was built at Aker Brattvaag's Brevik yard in Norway and set sail to join Farstad's Australasian fleet where currently it is uncommitted.

    Brokers Seabrokers says it believes the UT755L variant is a unique design, as aclose study of the owner's preliminary specification reveals that the vessel comes equipped with a 150 tonnes pull double drum winch producing a bollard pull of 80 tonnes.

    To allow room for the winches, the designers 'borrowed' circa 80m2 in deck space from a standard UT755L, meaning the vessel now has only 600m2 of clear deck space.
