The third Ulstein designed platform supply vessel of the PX105 design for Seatankers, Sea Forth, was delivered on August 16, 2013 from the Zhejiang yard in Ningbo.
Ulstein delivers twelve design and equipment packages to the Chinese yard, where all the vessels for Seatankers Group will be constructed. The packages include design, engineering and equipment supplies. The ships comply with the DNV requirements of the Clean or Clean Design standards.
The ship is designed with the patented X-BOW hull line design. These vessels have low vibration levels, resulting in increased comfort, and no speed loss due to the elimination of bow wave impact. The vessels can maintain higher speed even in foul weather, and the operational window is increased.
“In this project, Ulstein employees in Norway, Poland, Croatia as well as on site in Ningbo have teamed up for designing, engineering, commissioning and completion of the vessel,” commented Project Manager in Ulstein Design and Solutions, Johannes Røren.
ZJ2015, Sea Forth, measures 88.9 meters long and 19 meters in the beam. She has a dead weight of 4,500 metric tons and a loading deck area of approximately 1,000 square meters. The vessel is equipped with a diesel-electric propulsion system. She is fitted with Azipull 100 propellers, and can reach speeds of 15.5 knots. Sea Forth has a comprehensive electrical and automation package delivered by Ulstein Power and Control, an integrated complete solution that includes the propulsion system, main switchboards, distribution switchboards, the communication system Ulstein COM, the bridge solution Ulstein BRIDGE and the automation system Ulstein IAS
