Penguin Delivers Crewboat

Press Release
Thursday, November 01, 2012

“The world’s fastest tripe screw Cummins KTA-38-M2 powered crewboat,” said Singapore’s Penguin Marine before adding another feature, “with armor-plated bridge.”


Delivered in October 2012, Penguin’s Flex-38S series crew boat, the MV Abba is fast and versatile. With capacity for up to 90 workers in reclining seats the boat also has an 80-square-meter open deck with a 55-ton capacity. The deck is strengthened for up to two MT per square meter.


 
At 38 x7.6 m(124.7 x 25-feet) with a molded depth of 3.65 m (aprox. 12 feet) this is a big boat built to Penguin Shipyard International Pte Ltd’s proprietary design. The boat is designed to carry robust cargos at optimum speeds. At 31.5 MT DW the MV Abba can achieve 27 knots at 100 % of MCR and then, in a fuel-saving mode using an 85% MCR and the same deadweight, the vessel still achieves a remarkable 26 knots. 


 
The three resilient-mounted Cummins KTA-38-M2 engines turn fixed-pitch nickel-alum-bronze 5-blade propellers through Twin Disc MGX6690 gears with 2.93:1 reduction. Each engine is rated for 1,350 BHP at 1900 RPM. There is a single 100 HP electro-hydraulic bow-thruster. There is also an external FiFi monitor with a remote clutch and 600 cbm pump.


 
Auxiliary power for the MV Abba includes three Cummins 6BT5.9-DM1 engines turning Stamford UCM274G 80 kW alternators. Tankage is provided for 65,000 liters of fuel oil and 30,000 liters of fresh water. Accommodation for eight crewmembers is provided in four bunkrooms. A rescue zone is defined and a motorized workboat, with davit, is installed. The boat is also fitted with an IMO approved Sewage treatment plant to handle up to 15 crew. The SOLAS-equipped boat is classed ABS +A1 HSC +AMS “Crewboat” and meets the regulations, codes and guidelines of MARPOL, SOLAS, and IMDG.
