Delta Logistics Orders New PSV at Shipyard De Hoop

Shipyard De Hoop announced yet another new build order. The contract comprises of a new design for a 70 x 15.8 metre Platform Supply Vessel (PSV) for Delta Logistics Limited of Trinidad.

This vessel heralds the next generation of De Hoop PSV’s, coming as a further development of De Hoop’s KISS design, that was recently built and delivered for Pemex in Mexico. The vessel, with deep water capabilities, will operate in the offshore fields near Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean Sea. The PSV is scheduled for delivery in the third quarter of next year.

This latest evolution has been further widened to 15.8 metres, to allow for a deadweight of over 2500 tons. The hull form is optimised for fuel efficient operations, during both transit and DP modes. It will be fitted with a specially developed bulbous bow, designed to maintain a service speed of 12 knots, whilst saving almost 17% of power during transit. In close consultation with the yard, Delta chose a diesel-electric propulsion concept to achieve enhanced flexibility and economical superiority.

As with the KISS design, the generators are located on the main deck; this not only allows much larger cargo volumes, but also easier access for maintenance. The resulting enormous tank capacities make this vessel stand out in its size range.

This technically advanced ship will exploit Shipyard De Hoop’s knowledge and experience in luxury cruise vessels to provide a high standard accommodation. This includes low noise and vibration levels, optimised air treatment and further features to provide the crew with an exceedingly high level of comfort.
