VT Halter Marine Launches HOS Commander

VT Halter Marine yesterday launched the first, out of ten ordered, 97.2m long Offshore Supply Vessel (OSV) “HOS Commander”. The vessel is based on VT Halter Marine’s Super 320 design developed for Hornbeck Offshore Services, Inc.

The Super 320 design is based on an enlarged version of an 88-metre Platform Supply Vessel, HOS Coral, which VT Halter Marine had delivered to HOS in March 2009. The Super 320 design has been developed with particular attention to the stringent regulations for environmental stewardship including a double-hull that eliminates any fuel storage adjacent to the sideshell, and propulsion machinery that meets the requirements of EPA Tier 3 for stack emissions.

The DP2 OSV is designed to have approximately 20,900 bbls of liquid mud carrying capability, 11,863 sq. ft. of deck area, and a fire – fighting class notation.

Delivery of HOS Commander is scheduled for October 2013.
