Grandweld Delivers the Forward Landing Crew Boat

Monday, August 15, 2011

Grandweld Shipyards delivered the first forward landing crew boat design in the region. The 24M vessel features a customized forward bow fender, designed for steady and secure landing into a dedicated offshore landing structure.  Upon swift landing, the offshore personnel can directly disembark to the offshore platform. This feature allows for safe, stable and quick embarkation of passengers to the offshore site. “The special features of the 24M vessel will create a strong impact in the region by transforming existing means of crew transfer. The vessel design has been adapted to meet modern operational requirements which seek faster, safer and more reliable means of operation, therefore we expect potential orders for this vessel in the near future.” said Jamal Abki, Grandweld General Manager.  The 24M Mutawa202 was built for Mutawa Marine EST and will be chartered to TOTAL to support offshore Oil and Gas operations. The vessel incorporates various commercial benefits such as reduced operational time. Furthermore, the vessel’s distinctive ability to operate in rough weather will cut down cost required to charter helicopter for crew transfer.
Special features of the “DOLPHIN Class” design include:
• Speed of over 30 knots
• 7 tons deck cargo
• Seaworthiness and ability to operate in unfavorable weather conditions
• Highly Maneuverable
• Low noise and vibration
• 360 degree visibility from wheelhouse
• External FiFI (300m3/hr)
• 6x Crew accommodation
• Safe enclosure of passengers within bulwark ensures safer embarkation in rough weather.
