DP Galyna christened

Another fast-track delivery to Chevalier Floatels has enabled the company to yet again deliver its third vessel for service support operations in the 2013 season.

Adding another versatile vessel to its fleet, Chevalier Floatels has distinguished itself as an organization that is capable of making fast-track deliveries to clients, even under the most demanding circumstances.

With the DP Galyna, another high spec Service Support Vessel has entered operations that offer offshore contractors solid performance across the board.

With the integrated Ampelmann transferring system, the operational window is increased up to 90% during the season. This, in combination with excellent DP capabilities, a heave compensated crane and ample deck space for stores, allows for much greater mobility in the field.

The vessel also provides facilities for multi-beam operations and other support activities.

Accommodating 60 persons in total with a crew of 16, the chartering party has availability of 44 single cabins. Alternatively 90 persons can be accommodated, in which case some cabins will be double cabins. The luxurious interior, which is unrivaled in the industry, offers the passengers a  wide range of amenities, including a fitness area, hospital, restaurant, laundry, lounge and smoking lounge, ensuring maximum comfort during offshore operations.

To further increase passenger comfort, special attention has been paid to vessel movement during the conversion.

With Holland Shipyards’ dedicated project team completing the project, an even faster delivery time was realized than was the case with DP Galyna’s sister vessel DP Gezina.

Where the DP Gezina was delivered in a mere 24 weeks, the DP Galyna was delivered in 19, which speaks volumes of Holland Shipyards’ adaptability as an organization, the company said.

Looking back at a hectic period in which two signature projects were delivered, Holland Shipyards is extremely proud of its project team and all those involved that have committed themselves tirelessly to the projects, which were by no means standard or easy.
