Dockwise takes delivery of TalismanVessel & ROV News // May 8, 2008
Following delivery of Transporter in May 2007 and Target in December 2007, the third vessel out of a series of six semi-submersible heavy lift vessels, Talisman, has joined the Dockwise Transport fleet.
Dockwise said the remaining three tankers that are being converted will be delivered in the course of 2008.
The vessel was converted at the COSCO shipyard at Nantong, China. During the conversion the majority of the steel structure has been replaced and machinery and equipment was fully replaced and/or upgraded.
To ensure the most effective way of operating the vessel, Dockwise has appointed Anglo-Eastern Ship Management to provide technical and crew management. As such, the new vessels will operate under the same management systems as the existing Dockwise vessels. Crews, superintendents and other personnel will therefore be familiar with all operating procedures, ensuring safe operations.
