Shipowner Britoil Offshore Services Pte Ltd. has entered into a contract of design and equipment packages for two platform supply vessels of the new PX121 design from Ulstein.

 

The vessels will be constructed at Britoil’s own yard, P.T. Britoil Offshore Indonesia, on the island Batam. The X-BOW vessels will mark Britoil’s entry into the PSV market.



Singapore based Britoil has a fleet of 40 vessels, mainly anchor handling tugs and barges. The company has more than 25 years of experience in ship services and transport. The first vessel of this design from Ulstein, "Blue Fighter", was delivered from Ulstein Verft earlier this year, and a team from Britoil attended her preliminary sea trials.



“Britoil is a new customer for Ulstein,” says deputy CEO Tore Ulstein in Ulstein Group, “and we are very happy that the company is now selecting Ulstein designs for their entry into a new market segment. We strongly believe that Britoil will find the new PX121 vessels to be a cost-effective and attractive complement to their fleet,” says Ulstein.



“This is a break-through for Ulstein  in Southeast Asia, and the first time an Ulstein  designed vessel will be constructed at an Indonesian yard. The contract comprises a comprehensive equipment package including basic design, engineering support and main equipment supplied by Ulstein (generator sets, DP system, main azimuth propellers, tunnel thruster and retractable thruster, FiFi system, cargo handling system etc.). I also includes a large power and control package (electric propulsion system, integrated bridge solution, consoles, radio/navigation equipment, Ulstein IAS (integrated automation system) and Ulstein COM (internal communication system), says Sigurd Viseth, managing director in Ulstein Design & Solutions.



While having the same hull lines as "Blue Fighter" and "Blue Prosper", these vessels are customised according to Britoil’s requirements. This includes one extra accommodation deck, allowing for a total complement of 50 persons. The ships will be built according to IMO’s SPS Code (special purpose ships), and will have OILREC class notation (oil spill recovery in emergency situations).
