    Wärtsilä-designed anchor handlers delivered

    Vessel & ROV News // October 4, 2016

    Two Wärtsilä-designed anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessels were delivered from the Wuchang Shipbuilding Industry Group yard in China during the second week of September.

    The ships were built for China Oilfield Services Ltd (COSL), the largest fleet owner of offshore service vessels in China. The contract for the vessels was placed in December 2014.
    The AHTS vessels are based on Wärtsilä Ship Design's VS 4612 design and have been customised to meet COSL's operational requirements with reduced environmental impact and an optimised hullform for reduced fuel consumption.
