(Press Release)
Thursday, July 12, 2012

Offshore Ship Designers UK division OSD-IMT has been awarded a contract to supply the design for a modified version of its IMT 982 Platform Supply Vessel to be built at the new shipyard facility of Honghua Offshore Oil & Gas Equipment in Jiangsu, China.

The contract is the result of increased marketing and technical collaboration between OSD group companies. It is contracted through OSD-Shanghai, with OSD-Singapore providing design engineering technical support to OSD Shanghai for design modification. The basic class-approved design documentation and design licence is provided by OSD-IMT Ltd, Montrose, UK.

The 83.2-metre long PSV has a deck area of 900 m² and can carry 1330 m³ of fuel oil, 800 m³ of potable fresh water, 980 m³ of liquid mud/brine, 1350 m³ of drill water/water ballast, 265 m³ of dry bulk and 170 m³ of base oil. It has a maximum load deadweight of about 4,000 tonnes at 6.0 m draught.

A diesel electric propulsion system is fitted comprising four main diesel generators, 2 x 1900 kW frequency controlled electric motor-driven azimuth thrusters for main propulsion and 2 x 800 kW frequency controlled electric motor driven tunnel thrusters fitted forward. The vessel is classed with Lloyds Register of Shipping and is fitted with a DP2 system. It has accommodation for a crew of 28 persons and has a trial speed of 14.0 knots.

Meanwhile, Swire Pacific Offshore (SPO) has confirmed an order with Universal Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) in Japan for 6 high-specification IMT 984 3700 DWT PSVs designed by OSD-IMT, with options for a further 4 vessels. The vessels will be built in USC's Keihin Shipyard and delivered progressively from third-quarter 2014.  These orders follow on from the one placed in late 2011 for four OSD-IMT-designed IMT 997 5000 DWT PSVs at USC’s Maizuru Shipyard and 4 IMT 997 PSVs at the EISA Shipyard, Rio de Janeiro, Brasil.
