Simon Møkster Shipping to acquire another Havyard 832 CD RSVessel & ROV News // September 12, 2008
Simon Møkster Shipping has ordered a second Havyard 832 CD RS.
Simon Møkster Shipping has signed contract with Simek shipyard in Norway for the construction of another Havyard 832 CD RS rescue and standby vessel.
In November of last year Simon Møkster Shipping ordered a Havyard 832 CD RS design for delivery October 2009, and has now ordered a sister vessel, which is due to be delivered in March 2010. The contract price is approximately US$55 million.
In addition to functioning as a PSV, the Havyard 832 CD RS has also been developed for rescue, standby and oil pollution control operations.
The design is based on the Havyard 832 CD and was developed in close co-operation between Simon Møkster Shipping and Havyard Design, the design company in the Havyard Group.
The Havyard 832 CD is a medium size PSV which, Havyard Group says has larger capacities, better fuel economy and is more environmentally friendly than existing medium size PSVs.
