New Standby Vessels

Ulstein Ship Technology will deliver the design for two newbuilds, type UT 719 R. The delivery will also include an Ulstein equipment package. The UT 719 R are specially designed to meet the requirements for standby vessels in the British sector. Håvard Ulstein, the sales manager at Ulstein Ship Technology, says that the company has great expectations for this design and believes that it will become a new trend-setter in the standby vessel market.

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 carries two daughter boats. These are 11 metre long high-speed vessels which, if necessary, can be launched and quickly reach the platforms. There are also two 7.5 metre long fast rescue craft.

Having several smaller vessels all on one larger vessel means that UT719 R can be ready to serve several platforms at the same time.
