Britoil Offshore Services’ Platform Supply Vessel (PSV) Britoil Energy, has been launched today at PT. Britoil Offshore Indonesia, Britoil’s own shipyard on the island Batam.
Britoil entered into a contract with Ulstein for design and equipment packages for two PSVs of the new PX121 design in 2012. The first of two vessels, Britoil Power, was launched in January 2015. The second PSV, Britoil Energy was scheduled for a launch in February; however, the launch was postponed for March. The vessels were constructed at Britoil’s own yard.
Gunnar Haug, Ulstein Group representative in South East Asia, comments:
“The launching was smooth as silk, just like the previous one in January. The twin sisters “Britoil Power” and “Britoil Energy” now accompany each other – being outfitted alongside at the same yard.”
These two PX121 vessels will mark Britoil’s entry into the PSV market.
