Incat Crowther announced that it has been awarded a contract to design a fleet of 48 m monohull Fast Supply Vessels (FSVs).

A total twelve of these vessels will be built by ETP Engenharia Ltda., which has also recently delivered a pair of Incat Crowther 36 m monohull crewboats meeting the Petrobras P2 vessel specification. Six of the new FSVs will be owned by Baru Offshore Navegação, which is a Brazilian subsidiary of Intertug S.A., and the other six FSVs will be owned by Senior Navegação.

These workhorses will be operating in Brazil for Petrobras and have been optimized to comply with the UT4000 Fast Supply Vessel specification. Ships fuel will be in excess of 40 000 liters, while it will carry a cargo fuel load of 90 000 liters. The vessels will also be able to carry 90,000 liters of cargo fresh water.

The vessel is dominated by an expansive aft deck of 225 square meters of usable area. The aft deck will be planked with hardwood and protected by study cargo rails.

An additional 30 sqm of cargo area is provided inside the main deck cabin, allowing for the carriage of items out of the elements, such as food and other supplies. A small meeting room for 6 personnel is also housed in the main deck cabin, as are facilities like a wet room and laundry.

The upper deck wheelhouse includes an aft-facing control station, allowing for safe and efficient maneuvering.

Below decks are 6 cabins, accommodating 11 crew, as well as a mess, galley and bathrooms.

Each vessel will be powered by a quartet of Cummins QSK 50 main engines, each rated at 1800 hp @ 1800 rpm. Fixed-pitched propellers have been selected for propulsion, giving the vessel a service speed of 21knots. Two 150 horsepower electric tunnel bow thrusters will enhance maneuverability.
