Brazilian shipbuilder ETP Engenharia in Rio de Janeiro has delivered the final six vessels of a 12-ship order for Baru Offshore.

The six newest 48-meter DNV Classed DP-1 vessels – Baru Serrana, Baru Tesoro, Baru Sinu, Baru Sirius, Baru Taurus and Baru Vega – were delivered over the last several months to Baru Offshore, a subsidiary of INTERTUG, for charter with Petrobras.
The vessels’ designer Incat Crowther said the vessels are optimized to comply with the Petrobras UT4000 Fast Supply Vessel specification. Liquid capacities include 42,000 liters of ship’s fuel, 90,000 liters of cargo fuel, 10,000 liters of ship’s water and 88,000 liters of cargo fresh water.
Each vessel is equipped with an aft cargo deck with 225 square meters of usable area rated for 3 metric tons per square meter and a total capacity of 250 metric tons of deck cargo.
An additional 30 squarte meters of cargo area is provided inside the main deck cabin, allowing for carriage of items out of the elements, such as food, medical supplies, small tools and similar type cargoes. This space has the ability to be reconfigured for the carriage of 60 offshore personnel. Also housed in the main deck cabin are wet room and laundry facilities.
Six cabins accommodating 11crew, as well as a mess, galley and bathrooms are provided below deck of each vessel.
Each vessel is powered by four Cummins QSK 50 main engines, each rated at 1,800hp at 1,900 rpm. Propulsion is by way of fixed-pitched propellers, while two 150 hp electric tunnel bow thrusters enhance maneuverability for the DP classed vessels. The vessels have a service speed of 21 knots.
