Golden Energy Offshore has entered into a shipbuilding contract with Nantong Rainbow Offshore & Engineering Equipments Co., Ltd. (ROC) in China for the construction of two Platform Supply Vessels (PSVs) of the PX121H design from Ulstein, with the option to build two more vessels of the same design. The two confirmed vessels are due for delivery from yard in Q1 and Q2 of 2016.

The vessels of the PX121H design are customized with an extra deck. They have an overall length of 83.4 meters and a beam of 18 meters and a deadweight (dwt) of 4,000 metric tons. The vessels will be equipped with the most modern solutions for DP2 (dynamic positioning), oil recovery and fire-fighting. The ships are recognized as medium-sized PSVs and have a cargo deck of approximately 850 square meters and under-deck capacities well suited for the intended operations. They can accommodate up to 30 persons, and will be built according to IMO’s SPS code for Special Purpose Ships. In addition, the vessels will be prepared for the installation of and AHC Crane with up to 67 metric tons capacity and an ROV mezzanine deck, which means the vessels can easily be configured for IMR (Inspection, Maintenance, Repair), ROV support, trenching and light subsea construction work.

 “Golden Energy Offshore is a fully integrated ship owning company located in Ålesund, Norway with all management functions in-house,” said Per Ivar Fagervoll, CEO in Golden Energy Offshore. “In addition to design, Ulstein also delivers a significant package including equipment, supervision, commissioning and testing, which has been instrumental and a condition for us to enter into this series of vessels. There is also other Norwegian equipment on-board including the accommodation interior package, delivered in accordance with Norwegian standards.”

“The PX121 design has become very sought-after in a short period of time, and including these vessels, a total of 24 vessels for seven different ship-owners have been contracted,” said Gunvor Ulstein, CEO in Ulstein Group.
