Hallin Marine Adds DP2 Vessel to Fleet
Integrated subsea contractor Hallin Marine has expanded its fleet with the purchase of the dynamically positioned (DP2) vessel, the Penrith.
Hallin already knows the 67 meter Penrith well, having operated the vessel since its launch in 2008 under a time charter from owners Seacor Marine.
Hallin believes the purchase of the Penrith from Seacor for an undisclosed sum will ensure it has total control of the vessel and allow it to offer clients competitive vessel packages, including its range of air diving systems, remote operated vehicles (ROVs) and survey equipment.
The Penrith is powered by two MaK Caterpillar diesel engines, which produce 8,000 brake horse power, is ABS classed and has a fire fighting capability.
The vessel is fitted with additional equipment to target subsea intervention programs, including increased accommodation for 52, has a 20t subsea crane and additional position reference systems.
Hallin's marine management division will operate the vessel, along with the subsea operations vessels the Ullswater, the Windermere, which is currently being fitted out in Singapore, following its launch in December last year, and the Sanko Angel.
