Stanford Hawk

Stanford Marine, a regional offshore marine business, announced today from its Dubai headquarters the delivery of the latest addition to its fleet.

The Stanford Hawk, a 75m diesel electric platform supply vessel (PSV) is one of two sister vessels being built at the Fujian Mawei shipyard in Fuzhou, China. The Hawk and her sister due for delivery by end of the second quarter 2014, the Stanford Eagle, are modern closed bow designed PSV’s with DP2 and FiFi1 notation. The vessels have excellent storage capacities for fluid and products below deck and a usable deck area of 700m2, with spacious accommodation for a maximum of 52 persons onboard.

Stanford Marine’s General Manager, Darren Reeves, stated, “ This represents the 12th vessel we have taken delivery of from Mawei shipyard and is indicative of the high standards of quality we have come to expect. The Hawk is a very exciting design capable of working effectively in the Middle East or as part of more remote, deep water charters in East and West Africa, or even further afield. The Hawk is currently under consideration for several opportunities regionally and globally and I am confident that wherever she ends up, she will perform to the highest levels.”

This latest new delivery and further deliveries of newbuild vessels in the pipeline enable Stanford Marine to maintain a young and versatile fleet mix which allows Stanford to service clients in shallow as well as deep water basins in current and new territories.

The rejuvenation and expansion in Stanford’s fleet is an ongoing process in keeping with the increased demand the company continues to experience, and facilitates the consolidation of the company as one of the leading players in the industry.
