Baru Gorgona and Baru Macura were built by ETP Engenharia Ltda.
Two UT4000 monohull Fast Supply Vessels built by ETP Engenharia Ltda have been delivered to owner Baru Offshore Navegacao Ltda. Baru Providencia and Baru Antares are the third and fourth in a 12 boat series, following on from Baru Gorgona and Baru Macura.
The vessel designs were optimized to comply with the UT4000 Fast Supply Vessel specification. Ships fuel is in excess of 40,000 litres, with a cargo fuel load of 90,000 litres. There is also capacity for 90,000 litres of cargo fresh water.
Designer Incat Crowther said the vessels are dominated by an expansive aft deck of 225m2 of usable area, planked with hardwood and protected by sturdy cargo rails. An additional 30m2 of cargo area is provided inside the main deck cabin, allowing for the carriage of items out of the elements, such as food and other supplies. Also housed in the main deck cabin are wet room and laundry facilities.
The upper deck wheelhouse includes an aft facing control station allowing for safe and efficient maneuvering.
Below decks are 6 cabins accommodating 11 crew, as well as a mess, galley and bathrooms.
The vessels are powered by a quartet of Cummins QSK 50 main engines, each rated at 1800hp at 1,800 rpm. Propulsion is by way of fixed-pitched propellers, whilst two 150 hp electric tunnel bow thrusters enhance maneuverability. The vessel has a service speed of 21 knots.
