Guangdong Yuexin Ocean Engineering has delivered the 'SMS Endeavour', an Anchor Handling Towing Supply (AHTS) Vessel .

SMS Endeavour is intended for operations in the offshore waters of Asia, West Africa, and Middle East.

The Martens Marine E 65T Series vessels are powered by twin CAT 3516C engines at 5,150 brake horsepower. These engines are in compliance with US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Marine Tier 2 Commercial Regulations. T

Vessels in this series are also equipped with twin Kawasaki bow thrusters of 8T capacity each, and a set of Becker high-lift performance rudders. The Kongsberg Dynamic Positioning system onboard allows the vessels to maintain station in a Sea State 4 environment with winds up to Beaufort Force 7 and currents at 2 knots.

Similar to its sister vessels, the mess area of SMS Endeavour has been optimized to allow for a large number of crew in one sitting. The bridge area also features a larger working space from conventional 5150 BHP AHTSV to facilitate project work.

The builder informs the new vessel is bound for South East Asia in the coming days.
