Aker Yards to Build AHTS for DOF Installer
The vessel is an Anchor Handling Supply Vessel based on the Aker Yards design AH 04 CD. President of the business area Offshore & Specialized Vessels, Roy Reite says in a comment:
"Offering our own design of vessels to the offshore industry is becoming a major competitive advantage in the market. The demand for our own design is exceeding all expectations."
Delivery is scheduled in first half of 2011. The vessel will have a bollard pull in excess of 300 tons, and will be outfitted with a triple drum winch of 500 tons. Accommodation is planned for 90 people.
The hull for the vessel will be built at Aker Yards in Romania and it will be outfitted at Aker Yards in Norway.
