M/V Island Duchess

Island Offshore took delivery of M/V Island Duchess from the Vard Brevik yard in Norway. This is the second vessel in a series of four platform supply vessels of Rolls-Royce UT 717 CD design to be delivered from Vard Brevik in 2013 and 2014.

M/V Island Duchess was christened together with her sister vessel M/V Island Duke during a naming ceremony earlier this summer, and is heading for the spot market as soon as she leaves the yard.

Managing director of Island Offshore, Håvard Ulstein said, “This is our 20 vessel built at Vard Brevik, with four more yet to be delivered.”

The vessel has an overall length of 84.45 meters and a breadth of 17 meters with a deadweight of 3,800 metric tons and a deck capacity of 800m2. M/V Island Duchess will be transporting pipes and general deck load, liquid cargo as well as cement and barite to drilling rigs in the North Sea. She is also prepared for later duties as standby/rescue vessel.

The Island Offshore group comprises 25 vessels in operation including the vessel segments PSV, AHTS, Well stimulation, Subsea Construction and Light Well Intervention. The new building program includes an additional five vessels to be added to the fleet in 2013 and 2014. The fleet is modern and versatile and Island Offshore has taken a leading position in attractive market segments. The Group is privately owned.
