Ulstein Delivers 12 PSV Designs to Zhejiang Shipbuilding, China

Sinopacific’s Zhejiang yard in Ningbo, China, has entered into a contract with ULSTEIN for the delivery of twelve design packages for platform support vessels of the PX105 design for Seatankers Group.

Seatankers Group is a new customer for ULSTEIN”, says Managing Director Sigurd Viseth at Ulstein Design and Solutions AS, “and we are very happy that the company chooses our designs. We strongly believe that they will find these to be cost-effective and excellent vessels”.

In total since 2007, Sinopacific has now entered into contracts involving as many as 22 vessels incorporating ULSTEIN’s designs. For most of the projects at the yard, all parties have benefited greatly from construction supervision carried out by ULSTEIN. A dedicated project team has been on site and has supervised the entire process, which has ensured that construction work went smoothly. We believe that Seatankers Group will also appreciate the benefits of our having close links with the construction yard for their 12 new vessels ordered at Sinopacific”, says Viseth.

The contract incorporates a comprehensive equipment package including design, engineering and equipment supplied by ULSTEIN. The vessels are 88.9 metres long and 19 metres in the beam. They are equipped with a diesel-electric propulsion system and a comprehensive electrical package delivered by Ulstein Power & Control. They are fitted with Azipull 100 propellers, and will be able to reach speeds of 15.5 knots. The loading deck area is in excess of 1,000 m2 and the vessels each have a dead weight of 4,700 tonnes.

They comply with the DNV requirements of the Clean and Clean Design standards.

Including these new contracts, ULSTEIN has sold a total of 26 vessels of the PX105 design incorporating the X-BOW® hull line design, and has received excellent feedback from crews working on board vessels of this type. X-BOW® vessels are fuel-efficient and can maintain high speeds even in harsh weather conditions. 62 vessels with the X-BOW® design have been sold since its launch in 2005.
