Sealink Readies No. 7 in OSV Series

Tuesday, July 31, 2007
East Malaysia continues to be a world hot spot in meeting the strong demand for oil industry support vessels. As fleet operators and shipbuilders, Sealink Sdn. Bhd. plays a major role in this success. In early August 2007 they will deliver the sixth in their 48-meter series of utility/off-shore-supply vessels to their operations arm. As with the others in the series, the Sealink Vanessa 7 is built to a Conan Wu & Associates design at 48x11-meters with a molded depth of 3.5 meters.

These vessels have port and starboard midship tankage for 295 cu. m. of fuel and 313 cu. m. water. Accommodation is provided for 24 crew members. The Cummins-powered vessels have a pair of Cummins 6CTA-powered 150 kW generators, a Cummins VTA28 DM powered fire fighting pump. The main propulsion vessels are a pair of Cummins KTA38 M2 engines generating 1200 hp each at 1800 rpm. The mains turn in to Reintjes WAF572 gears with 7.09:1 ratios. The vessel’s four-blade 1.5x1.545-meter Kaplan-type propellers are fitted with nozzles.

Earlier vessels in the series include the Sealink Vanessa
