COSL expands fleet with new anchor handlers
China’s Wuchang Shipbuilding has delivered two anchor handlers to its compatriot China Oilfield Services Ltd (COSL).
According to Wärtsilä, a Finnish company which designed the vessels, the two Anchor Handling Tug Supply (AHTS) vessels were delivered in September.
The AHTS vessels are based on Wärtsilä Ship Design’s VS 4612 design, and have been customized to meet COSL’s operational requirements.
The design features a reduced environmental impact and an optimized hull line providing lower fuel consumption, the designer said.
