MPSV Olympic Triton deliveredVessel & ROV News // October 26, 2007
Olympic Triton will head for the Gulf of Mexico shortly.
The MPSV Olympic Triton was delivered by Ulstein Verft shipyard in Norway on October 25th. After the name giving ceremony the ship will enter service in the North Sea.
Olympic Triton, an ULSTEIN P101, is the third vessel of this type built to date.
"Because of the positive feedback on those ships, Olympic chose a similar vessel, but further developed it into a larger version of the deign. Our newbuilding is especially adapted for subsea operations, and thus it is essential that the ship has steady motion,” said CEO Stig Remøy of Olympic Shipping.
The ship is 95m long and has a breadth of 20.5m, and is equipped with a ROV hangar, moonpool, a 150 tonne offshore crane, helideck and accommodation for 100.
The MPSV is also prepared for a tower and a 150-tonne 'A' frame on the stern. The permanent crew numbers about 20 persons.
Olympic also has a sister ship under construction at Ulstein.
“Canyon Offshore in Aberdeen has chartered the ship on a three-year contract. Her first assignment will be a small job in the North Sea before heading for the Gulf of Mexico. There the ship will operate until next summer,” said Mr Remøy.
“The project team and the other employees have done an excellent job, and the ship was delivered before the contract date. It is a job worthy of respect and one we are proud of. We also wish to thank Olympic for the good cooperation and wish the Olympic Triton good fortune on her voyages,” said Ulstein Verft's CEO, Karsten Sævik.
