Solstrand to build new Havyard PSV designVessel & ROV News // February 5, 2007
Norwegian shipyard Solstrand AS has been awarded a contract to build a Havyard 832 CD PSV for Supply Service AS in the Faroe Island, for delivery in September 2008.
Havyard Maritime describes the Havyard 832 as being intentionally designed to be between the medium size PSV (with a deadweight of 3,200-3,500 tonnes) and a large PSV (with a deadweight in the 4,500-5,000 tonnes range).
The Havyard 832 CD has deadweight of 4,000 tonnes, which Havyard Maritime believes will give it an advantage in the market, since the vessel has significant higher capacities compare to medium size vessels and a very competitive price compared to larger vessels.
The design is also very flexible, and could be lengthened by approximately 5m if more capacity is required.
The vessel's beam would also enable it to be fitted with a ROV or more accommodation.
The vessel will also bear the class notation required for 'Clean Design.'
