Spanish shipyard Gondan has launched a new PSV for the Norwegian shipowner Simon Møkster Shipping.
The ceremony attended by the CEO of the shipowner, Anne Jorunn Møkster, accompanied by other members of the management team.
The Director of the shipyard, Alvaro Platero, thanked the shipowner for having confidence in the firm, while he highlighted the fact that this construction shows, once again, the shipyard’s high technical capability for building extremely complex ships.
The new PSV, a UT 776 WP wave piercing Rolls Royce Marine design, has a length of 92m and beam of 20m. It features a FiFi II system, with monitors installed at the stern, allowing much safer and more efficient fire fighting operation in offshore facilities.
It will have a higher De-Icing class notation than a previous PSV built for the same shipowner, and will be equipped with the Rolls-Royce Marine Unified Bridge, placing the vessel control board as one of the most modern in the world today.
The delivery is scheduled for early next year.
This new PSV is the third unit built by Gondan Shipyard for the Norwegian shipowner. The yard has also delivered the PSVs Stril Merkur in 2011 and the Stril Luna in 2014. Both are operating for oil platforms at the North Sea, chartered by Statoil.
