Crewboat Rusillah delivered by Penguin ShipyardVessel & ROV News // April 27, 2006
Rusillah 1 was built by Penguin Shipyard International.
Rusillah 1 has firefighting capability and oil dispersal booms.
In late March, aluminum boatbuilder Penguin Shipyard International in Singapore delivered the 5,400hp 40m x7.5m crew boat Rusillah 1 to the JCB Company of Sabah in Eastern Malaysia.
Four meters longer than the recently delivered Bayu Tiram, the boat has a 97.4 square meter aft cargo deck and seating for up to 70 passengers.
A full galley, mess and accommodations are provided for up to eight crew members.
The wheelhouse has fore and aft controls with good visibility out to the stern for working under the drilling rigs. A centrally located chart table has curtain track fitted for night use.
Forward, two pilot chairs face a clean easy to read control panel that, like the aft control panel, contains gauges and controls for the two auxiliaries and three main engines.
The engines, supplied by Cummins Engine (Singapore), are also larger. The mains are three KTA50 mains each rated for 1,800hp at 1,900rpm. The mains turn three fixed pitch propellers. The auxiliary engines are a pair of Cummins 6CTA8.3 (D)M powering 99kW generators.
In addition to firefighting capabilities the vessel is equipped with booms for spraying oil disperant.
