ULSTEIN PX121 design PSVs

Vroon Offshore Services has ordered two additional platform supply vessels (PSV) of the ULSTEIN PX121 design, to be built by COSCO (Guang Dong) Shipyard Co. Ltd.

 
Ulstein has entered into an agreement with COSCO on delivering ship design, power & control equipment and on-site follow-up services.

The first of six vessels in this series, VOS Pace, was launched June 30th.

Each of Vroon’s six PSVs is scheduled for delivery in 2015 and intended for operation in European waters.

Measuring 83.4 metres in length, with a beam of 18 metres, they boast a rectangular cargo deck of 830 square metres and a load capacity of 4,200 tonnes (dwt).

Thanks to flexible tank capacities, the PX121 is set up to support drilling activities with longer and deeper boreholes and activities further from shore.

In addition to tanks for oil, water and drilling fluids, the vessel also has two stainless steel tanks for flammable liquids or corrosive chemicals.

Each ship will be equipped with dynamic positioning system Class II and meets the requirements of ‘Clean Design’, according to ABS class.

The PX121 has a maximum speed of approximately 15 knots and provides accommodation for up to 23 people.
