The PSV 5000’s, measuring 85m in length and 19m in width, will feature a diesel-electric propulsion line with DP2 station keeping capabilities.

The vessels will comply to the specifications of the sixth round of the Program for the Renovation of the Offshore Support Fleet of Petrobras, including a travelling gantry crane for offshore operations.

Next to this, future upgrades like Bulk Handling systems have been taken into account in the design.
