    Ulstein Verft in Norway has formally christened and handed over the anchor handling tug supply vessel Olympic Hercules to Olympic Shipping AS, the first vessel built by the yard based on its newly developed A101 design.

    The Olympic Hercules is designed to undertake a wide range of duties, including laying and handling of anchors and mooring lines, towing of production platforms, handling and installation of subsea construction blocks and equipment, and trenching for pipelaying. She also has considerable capacities for liquid cargo and deck cargo.

    With a length overall of 92.1m and length between perpendiculars of 72.70m, the Olympic Hercules has a moulded breadth of 20m, depth to main deck of 9.5m, draft (maximum) of 7.5m, and design draft of 7.0m. With a speed of approximately 19kt, she has a bollard pull of 270 tonnes.

    Another vessel of the same type is due to be delivered to Olympic Shipping in December 2002.
