DP Gezina

The naming of Service Support Vessel DP Gezina in Hardinxveld – Giessendam was performed by Mrs. Gezina Roelofs, and witnessed by the 200 guests attending the event. Mrs. Gezina Roelofs is the mother of the owner of Chevalier Floatels, Marcel Roelofs.

With Chevalier Floatels new flagship, DP Gezina completed, both Chevalier Floatels and Holland Shipyards companies have added another vessel to their track record.

During the conversion the vessel was lengthened by nine meters and sponsons were added to improve the sea keeping and make the vessel more comfortable for those onboard. Internally the vessel was completely changed and is now capable of accommodating 60 to 90 persons.

Technically, the vessel was equipped with an additional machinery room to house the Ampelmann system and two additional generators. The generators provide power for the additional loads required to meet the requirements of DP2 notation and the equipment required for the vessel to fulfill its intended role. These equipment’s include retractable bow thruster for the DP2 requirements and an Ampelmann crew transfer system.

With the added machinery room, additional bow thruster and increased generator capacity, the vessel been able be equipped with a DP 2 system and consequent class notation.

The Ampelmann has the capacity to work in wave heights up to three meters significant, thus increasing productivity in the field.

On the aft deck a heave compensated work crane has been fitted, with capacity of one ton at 20-meter outreach for servicing offshore installations. Also the vessel has been equipped with the facility to accept multi beam sonar, thus allowing for works such as cable inspections.

After a relatively smooth building period for six months, the company said the vessel has already secured its first charter, and the market is responding positively. Looking to the future DP Gezina’s sister ship is currently being converted by Holland Shipyards to serve the same market.
