New Rescue Ship Class Fitted With Aquamaster Propulsion

A new state-of-the-art standby/rescue vessel class now in operation has been fitted with Aquamaster propulsion systems, reportedly giving the vessels excellent maneuverability and control.

The first vessel, Scott Guardian, is in service with Amerada Hess in the North Sea. The second vessel, Trafalgar Guardian, was taken into service with Enterprise Oil at the Nelson Field, also in the North Sea. Propulsion on both vessels is by two Aquamaster US 911 units mounted aft; they have a loiter drive Aquamaster UL 601 retractable unit in the bow. All units are direct diesel driven. With the Aquamaster propulsion system, the ships rotate on the spot through 360 degrees in 63 seconds and can remain on station alongside a rig in severe North Sea weather conditions.

This new Sea Guardian class was designed by IMT and built by the Yorkshire Drydock Company in Hull to the order of the Sunset Shipping, U.K. The ships are managed and erewed by Seaboard Offshore of Aberdeen. For more information on Aquamaster Circle 2 on Reader Service Card
