Boa confirms order for light construction/well intervention vesselVessel & ROV News // March 31, 2015
Boa IMR AS (a Boa Offshore AS subsidiary) has confirmed that it has entered into a shipbuilding contract to build a light construction and inspection maintenance and repair (IMR) vessel with Noryards Fosen AS.
The design was developed in close cooperation between BOA and Noryards focusing on future operational demands under challenging conditions and highest safety and environmental standards.
Boa said the newbuilding will be one of the most energy-efficient vessel of its class, utilizing a number of features that contributes to optimal operational performance, low emissions and reduced fuel consumption.
The vessel will have free deck space of 1,500m2 with uniform deck strength of 15t/m2, two active heave compensated offshore subsea cranes (150 tonnes and 30 tonnes) , two work class ROVs in hangars, a moonpool and helideck.
The vessel’s overall length will be 108m with a beam of 24m and class notation includes Ice-1A, Well Stimulation and LFL.
The yard's owner Calexco Sarl will participate as an equity partner in the project and this, together with the payment schedule agreed, means limited need for additional equity from Boa Offshore before delivery in the first quarter of 2017.
