Dina Supplier Marks 100 for UT755

Friday, July 06, 2007
The delivery of Dina Supplier marks the delivery of vessel number 100 of the UT 755 design from Rolls-Royce. While the initial UT 755 design is more than 10 years old, the PSV Dina Supplier is considered to be a modern ship, equipped with the updated technology.

Dina Supplier is being delivered to Myklebusthaug Offshore AS (Fonnes, Norway), the owner’s second vessel of the UT 755 LC design, and the sixth delivered from the shipyard Simek AS in Flekkefjord, Norway. Simek has another four vessels of the same type in their order book.

“This kind of tonnage is still attractive in the market and the UT 755 series may well be the first offshore vessel design to reach 200”, said Jørn Heltne, Vice President of Rolls-Royce, when the contract for Dina Supplier was signed. The shipowner, Roald Myklebusthaug, says the design was chosen because it is well-proven, simple, one which does the job and is well-known worldwide in the offshore market. The owner already has Dina Merkur of the same design in their fleet.

“Dina Merkur has functioned exceptionally well during its first year in service. The bunker consumption is especially low, and we have had purely positive feedback from the crew about seakeeping qualities and noise/vibration levels,” said Myklebusthaug.

The UT 755 was conceived in the early 1990s. The design team predicted the need for a smaller PSV vessel than the established success UT 705. The UT 755 vessels have proven to be flexible workhorses for their owners.

The UT 755 design has been through a continual development process since the first delivery in 1996. (Suffolk Supporter for Britannia/Suffolk Marine.) Today’s UT 755 LC is 9.6 m longer than the first editions. This gives large supply capacity, especially a larger deck area as well as increased capacity for liquid goods such as mud, brine, base oil, etc. The vessel meets the environmental demands of the “Clean” and ”Comf-V(3)” notations.
