Norwegian shipowner names new PSV in Spain

Simon Møkster Shipping, the Norwegian shipowner, named its new platform supply vessel (PSV) on Saturday, January 9, at Gondan Shipyard in Figueras, Spain.

According to the shipyard, the event was attended by Simon Møkster CEO, Anne Jorunn Møkster, accompanied by other members of the Management of the ship-owning company; as well as representatives from the shipyard and main suppliers.

The new PSV Vessel, with UT 776 WP “Wave Piercing” Rolls Royce Marine design, has a length of 92m and beam of 20m.

Although Stril Mar was built based on Stril Luna PSV design – delivered in 2014 to the same company – as a difference this new unit has a FiFi II system, with monitors installed at the stern, the shipyard noted.

Moreover, unlike its predecessor, this new unit has a higher De-Icing class notation, Gondan Shipyard added. The ship is also equipped with the RRM “Unified Bridge”.

This new PSV is the third unit built by Gondan Shipyard for the Norwegian shipowner, which in 2011 received from the Shipyard the Stril Merkur Vessel, a PSV of 97 meters length, and in August 2014, Stril Luna, with 92.80 meters length.
