Gondan Names PSV for Norwegian Owner

Gondan Shipyard in Figueras, Spain, has named a new platform supply vessel (PSV), Stril Mar, for Norwegian shipowner Simon Møkster Shipping.

The event was attended by the CEO of the owner, Anne Jorunn Møkster, accompanied by other members of the management as well as representatives from the shipyard and main suppliers.

The new PSV, with UT 776 WP “Wave Piercing” Rolls Royce Marine design, has a length of 92m and beam of 20m. Although she was built based on Stril Luna’s design delivered in 2014 to the same shipowner, this new unit is different because she has a FiFi II system, with monitors installed at the stern, allowing much safer and more efficient fire-fighting operation in offshore facilities.

Moreover, unlike her predecessor, this new unit has a higher de-icing class notation. The ship is also equipped with the RRM "Unified Bridge", placing the vessel control board as one of the most modern in the world today.

This new PSV is the third unit built by Gondan Shipyard for the shipowner, which in 2011 received from the shipyard the Stril Merkur, a PSV of 97 meters length, and in August 2014, Stril Luna, with 92.80 meters length. Both are operating for oil platforms in the North Sea chartered by Statoil.
