Siem Offshore, Norway-based provider of marine services to the oil and gas industry, has entered into shipbuilding-contracts with Remontowa Shipbuilding S.A. in Poland for four (4) dual-fuelled Platform Supply Vessels (PSVs). The vessels shall have systems for the use of either Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) or Marine Diesel Oil.
The vessels shall be of VS 4411 DF design. Siem Offshore has currently two vessels of similar design under construction for delivery — the Siem Symphony in 2014 and the Siem Pride (pictured) in 2015, and these vessels are contracted long-term with TOTAL E&P NORGE AS and AS Norske Shell respectively.
This new series of PSVs for Siem Offshore represents the latest technology within dual-fuelled systems and hull design, to the benefit of lower fuel consumption, lower fuel cost, lower emissions and a better environment.
The vessels shall be built to meet the highest requirements for operations on the Norwegian Continental Shelf and are also suited for operations in other geographical areas. They will have an overall length of 89 meters, a beam of 19 meters, a deck area of 970 m2 and with a capacity of 5,500 dwt.
The vessels have scheduled deliveries from third quarter 2015 to second quarter 2016.
