    Vessel & ROV News // June 28, 2007

    Island Offshore in Norway says its new AHTS Island Valiant was delivered from Aker Yards Langsten on June 22nd and is now available on the spot market.

    The vessel is a sophisticated anchor handler specially designed for deepwater operations. Compared to near-sister vessel Island Vanguard, Island Valiant has been extended by 7m, and accommodation increased to 60 persons.

    Island Valiant has a permanently installed work ROV from Oceaneering and has equipment for deploying and retrieving large suction anchors and subsea modules safely through a moonpool.

    A 90 tons subsea crane with Active Heave Compensation (AHC) can be fitted to the vessel should this be required.

    The design is a UT 787 CD from Rolls-Royce.
