Noordhoek Orders Support Vessel - 13/11/2007
Noordhoek Offshore has ordered a new-build diving offshore construction support vessel for their North Western European operations. The delivery of this new vessel is scheduled for the second half of 2009, following its delivery it will join the Noordhoek fleet.
This ordered vessel is specifically designed for efficient diving operations in the harsh North Sea environment. The new vessel will have an 76 metres overall length, 18 metre beam, 100 tonne main crane and accommodation for 70 people. The vessel will have Class 2 Dynamic Positioning and be compliant with the most demanding maritime and environmental regulations worldwide. The 12-man, single bell, saturation diving system will utilise the latest technology. The vessel will be designed primarily for Saturation, Air and TUP (Transfer Under Pressure) diving operations at depths of up to 200m. However with a clear deck space of 685m2, the 100 tonne main crane and a dual Light Work and Observation class ROV spread, the new build will clearly be a multi-role vessel suitable for worldwide deployment.
