Survey Catamaran 'Proteus of Liverpool' Delivered

A new 14 metre survey catamaran has been delivered to coastal survey specialists Osiris Projects by leading GRP workboat builders Blyth Workcats.

The new boat, named Proteus of Liverpool, has been custom-built at the yard on Canvey Island, UK, to provide a fast yet stable and comfortable working platform for coastal survey work.

The boat has been fitted with a range of high specification sonar and acoustic positioning systems that will provide the company’s clients with high quality survey data enhanced by the stability of the new boat.

“Proteus” is the fifth vessel in the Osiris Projects fleet and has MCA (Maritime and Coastguard Agency) category 2 approval to work up to 60 miles offshore. With a maximum design speed of 24 knots the new boat will be able to get quickly on station and commence surveying with minimum delay.

The new survey boat will work primarily for oil and gas and offshore renewable clients, performing cable and pipeline pre- and post-installation route surveys around the coastline of the UK and Northern Europe.

Blyth Workcats product range is noted for its exceptional value with highly competitive purchase prices. All vessels are built from GRP to provide strength where it is needed and valuable weight savings wherever the design permits it. Hull lamination and construction is governed by meticulous quality control so the customer can benefit from a boat that has been built to exactly meet their needs while enabling rugged strength and reinforcement to be applied wherever it is needed.
