Third Ulstein Designed PSV Delivered to Seatankers
The third ULSTEIN designed platform supply vessel of the PX105 design for Seatankers, ‘Sea Forth’, was delivered on 16 August 2013 from the Zhejiang yard in Ningbo.
ULSTEIN delivers twelve design and equipment packages to the Chinese yard, where all the vessels for Seatankers Group will be constructed. The packages include design, engineering and equipment supplies. The ships comply with the DNV requirements of the Clean or Clean Design standards.
The ship is designed with the patented X-BOW® hull line design. These vessels have low vibration levels, resulting in increased comfort, and no speed loss due to the elimination of bow wave impact. The vessels can maintain higher speed even in foul weather, and the operational window is increased.
“In this project, ULSTEIN employees in Norway, Poland, Croatia as well as on site in Ningbo have teamed up for designing, engineering, commissioning and completion of the vessel”, comments Project Manager in Ulstein Design & Solutions, Johannes Røren.
ZJ2015, ‘Sea Forth’, measures 88.9 metres long and 19 metres in the beam. She has a dead weight of 4,500 tonnes and a loading deck area of approximately 1,000 m2. The vessel is equipped with a diesel-electric propulsion system. She is fitted with Azipull 100 propellers, and can reach speeds of 15.5 knots. ’Sea Forth’ has a comprehensive electrical and automation package delivered by Ulstein Power & Control, an integrated complete solution that includes the propulsion system, main switchboards, distribution switchboards, the communication system ULSTEIN COM®, the bridge solution ULSTEIN BRIDGE™ and the automation system ULSTEIN IAS®.
