Launch of the first PX106 at Alianca shipyard in Brazil.

The first of two platform supply vessels (PSVs) of the PX106 type design was successfully launched from Alianca shipyard in Brazil mid-April.

The vessel is the first of four X-BOW® vessels for offshore shipowner CBO to be built at Alianca. After the launch, the superstructure was lifted onto the vessel and assembled in a smooth and problem-free operation.

CBO (Compania Brasileira de Offshore) ordered two PX106 and two PX105 designs from ULSTEIN at the end of 2009. The contracts include delivery of design, engineering, main equipment and building follow-up. The four PSVs are the first vessels with the X-BOW® to be constructed in Brazil. The vessels will enter into eight-year contracts, with options for extension, for the Brazilian state oil company Petrobas.
