    Fincantieri "close to building first AHTS"

    Yard News // January 17, 2006

    Fairplay's daily news reports that Finarge in Italy is negotiating a contract to build a new AHTS at Fincantieri shipyard which, if confirmed, would be the Italian shipbuilder’s first order of this type.

    Fairplay said Finarge wants to order something similar to the AHTS San Fruttuoso, which has a bollard pull of 185 tons, built at Aker Yards in Norway in 2003.

    However, as Fairplay also noted, there is a large order backlog at Aker and other yards that build offshore support vessels, and Fincantieri is reportedly offering a reasonable price for this first AHTS deal.
