New Standby Vessel Design


Ulstein Ship Technology will deliver the design for two newbuilds specially designed to meet the requirements for standby vessels in the British sector. The vessel's towing power is 60 tonnes and it has a contract speed of 14 knots. One of the vessel's advantages is that it has been developed to use as little fuel as possible when on standby. This is made possible by stopping the main engines and having an auxiliary engine to drive the Azimuth thrusters and the onboard generator.

The vessel has two 'Daughter Craft' vessels onboard. These are 11 metre long high-speed vessels which, if necessary, can put to sea and quickly reach the platforms. There are also two 7.5 metre long FRC vessels. Having several smaller vessels all on one large one means that UT719 R can be ready to serve several platforms at the same time. The contract with Ulstein Ship Technology is subject to funding being finalised.
