Crewboat from Grandweld

Friday, March 28, 2008

With twin Cummins KTA50 M2 engines each producing 1800 HP at 1900 RPM the crewboat Umm Al Rous has the power to move 12 off-shore personnel in comfort and safety at speeds of 25 knots using only 80 percent of her maximum continuous duty rating. At 25.3-meters, the solidly built boat assures comfort even in a heavy sea. With a 6.1-meter beam and a 2.8-meter depth, the vessel’s hull has a spacious engine room and ample soundproofing to assure a quiet ride. The vessel is equipped with two control stations.
Designed and built by the Grandweld Shipyard in , UAE the vessel was delivered to her owners Nakilat Svitzerwijsmuller WLL in late January 2008. She is operated by a crew of three and has tankage for 2906 gallons of fuel, 578 gallons of water and 57 USG of lube oil. The engines turn through Twin Disc MG6984A gears with 2.5:1 to 43.3 by 54-inch 5-blade propellers on 4.3-meter long 114.3 m/m shafts. A pair of 38 kw generator sets meet the offshore utility/crew-boat’s electrical requirements.
