Jiangsu Rainbow Heavy Industries (RHI) from China has entered into a contract for the construction of two platform supply vessels (PSVs) with a Norwegian provider of offshore support vessels, according to SinoShip News.
Golden Energy Offshore Group will pay each vessel $28.5m.
The two PSVs of Ulstein’s PX 121 design are scheduled for delivery in November 2015 and February 2016.
This type of PSV incorporates a revolutionary X-BOW® hull line design which allows the vessel higher transit speed in head and following sea, giving reduced power consumption and higher fuel efficiency in waves and still water.
