International Vessel

Monday, June 15, 2009

Vessels built in two or more companies are becoming routine especially in Europe. Typically the hull is built in a lower cost area such as Poland or China and then completed in the Netherlands where costs are higher. Recently a shipyard in Turkey completed a 135 by 11.45-meter hull with a 4.25-meter molded depth for finishing in the Netherlands. The Karadeniz Shipyard is located in Ünye/Ordu, Turkey. In addition to building hulls the yard builds complete vessels of many types. (http://www.karadeniztersanesi.com/haber.php )

Once in the Netherlands the hull was taken to the Scheepswerf Gelria in Nijmegen. Here it was completed as a twin-engined inland river vessel. In addition to installation of the superstructure five Cummins engines were installed. These included a pair of Cummins 4BT3.9-G4 powered 64 kVA generators and a QSK15-C bowthruster genset. The main engines are a two Cummins Tier 2 compliant QSK38-M engines each generating 1400 HP at 1800 RPM.

Christened the MVS Sierra and registered in the port of Gruten, the new vessel was delivered to her owners E.G.P. Peters earlier this year.
