New GBP 2 Million Vessel Launched in Scotland
Last Saturday, a new multi-purpose support vessel Helen Burnie was launched at Macduff Shipyards on the Isle of Mull.
The vessel, worth GBP 2 million is specially designed by Inverlussa Marine Services for renewable energy, dive support, survey and civil projects. It has the ability to carry up to 100 tonnes of deck cargo, 75 tonnes of fuel and 25 tonnes of fresh water. It offers modular accommodation with three two-compartment crew cabins.
The Helen Burnie has the latest technology equipment for specialist offshore windfarm and tidal survey work. With all the features, it can join Scotland’s renewable energy market in the very time of its rapid growth.
Considering the diversity of the tasks it can perform, the vessel can create up to 12 new working positions.
