Brazil’s CBO opts for Ulstein PSV design

The Brazilian ship owner CBO has ordered a design and equipment package for a platform supply vessel of the PX105 type from ULSTEIN.

The contract also includes an option for two more vessels. This will become the 11th ULSTEIN design in their fleet, of which 9 are with the ULSTEIN X-BOW®. The new vessel will be built at Aliança shipyard in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

“Due to the excellent performance demonstrated by our PX105 and PX106 vessels, we decided to build another ULSTEIN PX105 at the Estaleiro Aliança. We are sure that the good cooperation between our companies will continue also in the future,” says Alfredo Naslausky, CBO Director.

The contract includes design and an extended main equipment package. The vessel is designed to comply with the Brazilian state oil company Petrobras 4500 tender, and is scheduled for delivery in Q3 2016.

The PX105 design is a large PSV with accommodation for 23 people. The vessel will be 88.9 metres long and 19 metres wide, and has a cargo deck area of around 940 m2.
