Subsea construction vessel, Olympic Boa, was named at Kleven Verft on Saturday 29th 2014.
Vessel godmother was Iren Bjerkan, married to Helge Røraas, President and Chief Executive Officer at BOA marine services, who has chartered the vessel for the next three years plus options. The charter will begin during the second quarter of 2014 upon arrival in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM).
Olympic Boa is designed to meet the demanding offshore oil & gas market, with diesel electric frequency controlled propulsion, highly efficient azimuth thrusters with DP-2 dynamic positioning system for station keeping.
She is designed for low fuel consumption and excellent sea– and station-keeping capabilities, in addition to low noise and vibration levels in hull and superstructure that ensures the highest comfort and safety levels for the personnel onboard.
The vessel is equipped with a 250-ton active heave compensated crane with 3,000mtr working depth capability, accommodations for up to 110 personnel, a heli-deck rated for Sikorsky S-92/S-61 and a moon pool of 7.2m x 7.2m. Olympic Boa will also feature two Oceaneering Millennium Plus heavy work class ROVs, plus tooling suite.
