The Brazilian shipowning company Oceana Offshore will be building two platform supply vessels (PSV) with an option for two additional vessels based on the PX105 design from Ulstein. The vessels will be built at the new yard, Oceana Shipyard in Itajai, Brazil and are scheduled for delivery in April and May 2016, respectively.

The vessels for Oceana are purposed for work in the Brazilian oil industry.

The PX105 design is a large platform supply vessel with accommodation for 23 people. The vessels will be 88.9 meters long and 19 meters wide. With a DWT of 4,700 metric tons they comply with Petrobras’ PSV 4500 tender. Ulstein said these vessels have a high operational window and can take on complex assignments far from shore. They come with the X-BOW hull line design feature, in which slamming and abrupt stops from waves are eliminated. The vessels are cost-effective and fuel-saving, and the crews get more efficient rest, which also increase safety, Ulstein added.

“Oceana Offshore S.A. is funded by the solid investment and engineering partners P2 Brazil and BNDES. Their yard, Oceana Shipyard, is currently under construction in Itajai in the region of Santa Catarina, which is a maritime cluster of yards and related businesses,” said Senior Business Advisor Erik Andreassen in Ulstein Design & Solutions.
