Marine Core & Charter takes delivery of fast offshore support vesselVessel & ROV News // February 12, 2016
Marine Core & Charter LLC (MC2) in Dubai has taken delivery of the newbuild Petra-1, the first of two, 45m fast offshore support vessels.
Built by UAE-based Triangle Shipyard, the 45m fast offshore support vessel was designed by UK designer Camarc.
The hull is designed to optimize the power required to exceed speeds of 30 knots, combined with excellent seakeeping and a wide operational envelope. The design features a spacious deck area of 140m2 and large fuel cargo capacity of 100 tonnes.
Adib Abdel Massih, CEO of Marine Core & Charter said: “I am very pleased to add this new outstanding FOSV under our management. Petra-1 will commence operation in the Arabian Gulf to support oil and gas operations.”
A full-width maindeck cabin maximizes space for up to 100 personnel with a 12 person VIP lounge and a high quality interior finish. The full-width superstructure has been carefully designed for roll angle tolerance; fendering and recessed windows further improve the protection when alongside.
The vessel will be utilized for transportation of offshore personnel, cargo, and supply of fuel and fresh water.
