    New crewboat from Grandweld

    Vessel & ROV News // March 28, 2008

    Umm Al Rous was built by Grandweld for Nakilat Svitzerwijsmuller.

    With twin Cummins KTA50 M2 engines each producing 1,800hp at 1,900rpm, the crewboat Umm Al Rous has the power to move 12 offshore personnel in comfort and safety at speeds of 25 knots using only 80 per cent of her maximum continuous duty rating.

    At 25.3m, the solidly built boat assures comfort even in a heavy sea. With a 6.1m beam and a 2.8m depth, the vessel’s hull has a spacious engine room and ample soundproofing to assure a quiet ride. The vessel is equipped with two control stations.

    Designed and built by the Grandweld Shipyard in Dubai, UAE the vessel was delivered to her owners Nakilat Svitzerwijsmuller WLL in late January 2008.

    She is operated by a crew of three and has tankage for 2,906 US gallons of fuel, 578 US gallons of water and 57 USG of lube oil.

    The engines turn through Twin Disc MG6984A gears with 2.5:1 to 43.3 by 54in 5-blade propellers on 4.3m long shafts. A pair of 38kW generator sets meet the offshore utility/crewboat’s electrical requirements.
