Spotted: ALP Striker Hits the Water

ALP Striker Hits the WaterALP Striker, the first of four ultra-long distance towing and anchor handling vessels built by Japan’s Niigata Shipbuilding & Repair for ALP Maritime Services, was recently launched in Niigata.

Based on the ULSTEIN SX157 design, ALP Striker is the first vessel of its kind, and a part of the ALP Future Class.

ALP Striker is primarily designed for long-distance towing of large structures, such as oil rigs or FPSOs. The vessel is expected to deliver in the range of 300 t bollard pull.
