Incat Crowther announces it has secured a contract to design a 45m Monohull Crew Boat. The vessel will be built by Arpoador Engenharia Ltda and owned and operated by BSCO Navigation, a subsidiary of Brasil Supply. Incat Crowther’s USA office has worked hard to develop the new design, which will meet the specifications of the Petrobras P3-type crew boat for service in the Brazilian offshore oil fields.
The vessel’s design features a large aft main cargo deck optimized for cargo and crew transfers. The 78m2 cargo space will have a cargo capacity of 150t.
Main Cabin features seating for 60 passengers, 2 toilets, a beverage counter and large luggage racks.
Below deck accommodation includes sleeping quarters for 10 crew, a galley, mess, and a large wet room including showers, toilets and laundry facilities.
Below deck tankage will include fuel oil and fresh water for both the ship’s use and cargo. Ship’s fuel will exceed 30 000 litres, whilst cargo fuel capacity will exceed 100 000 litres. There are also large grey and black water tanks, as well as large lube oil and waste oil tanks.
The vessel will be powered by four Caterpillar C32 main engines. These will turn a brace of ZF 3050 gearboxes, with main propulsion from Doen waterjets. Station will be maintained by a 200 hp tunnel bow thruster. Electric power will be provided by a pair of 60 kw generators.
Incat Crowther is proud to be servicing the growing South American market with this vessel, with the USA office offering a wealth of experience in the offshore sector, and being well placed to provide ongoing support to South American clients.
