Offshore Ship Designers Series

Thursday, December 04, 2008

Three recent deliveries highlight the series of offshore support vessels designed by the Offshore Ship Designers group.

The VOS Pathfinder completes a series of five basic IMT955 Standby vessels built at Astilleros Zamakona, Spain, for Vroon Offshore Services. The 180 ft loa VOS Pathfinder was contracted in October to HRL Centrica for a five-year period working in the Morecambe Bay gas field. 

Also recently delivered are the VOS Pioneer and VOS Prospector, the first two of ten IMT 955-L Field Support Vessels building at Astilleros Zamakona, Spain for Vroon Offshore. They are based on the IMT955 design, lengthened to 197 ft loa and fitted with FIFI-1. Both are on long-term contract to Total.

The recently delivered Pacific Viper is the fifth of a ten-ship series of 120-tonne BP anchor-handling tug/supply vessels being built at Labroy Shipyard in Batam for Swire Pacific Offshore to an OSD IMT (formerly IMT Marine Consultants) design, the IMT966. The five remaining vessels in the series are all fitted with DP1 and will be delivered end-2008 and during 2009.

Offshore Ship Designers is based in IJmuiden, The Netherlands, and has offices in Montrose, Escrick, Bideford and Shanghai.
