Norwegian naval architect Marin Teknikk has entered into a contract with China Merchants Heavy Industry (Shenzhen) Co Ltd (CMHI) for design and engineering delivery for a new type of multipurpose diving support and construction vessel for Ultra Deep Charter Ltd (UDS) in Singapore.
The vessel will be of the MT6023 DSCV design, with an 18-man single bell saturation system for operations down to 300m.
The MT6023 DSCV is an advanced diving and construction Vessel developed for operations worldwide. The vessel will have a length of 111.58m and a breadth of 23m, what Marin Teknikk describes as "top class accommodation" for 120 persons, two cranes, a 150 tonne offshore crane with depth capability to 3,000m water depth, and one 10 tonne crane for operation down to 300m.

The vessel’s 1,000m² open work deck area will have a deck strength of 10 tonne/m² and a smaller storage area on top of dive hangar, creating a good platform for transport of equipment and tools.
