‘Go Michigan’, the first of four platform supply vessels for Singapore-based offshore services provider Otto Offshore, was launched on December 10, 2015, at Wuchang Shipbuilding Industry in China.
Go Michigan has an overall length of 83.4 metres, a beam of 18 metres and a load capacity of around 4,000 tonnes.
All four vessels, based on the PX121 design from Ulstein, are equipped with DP2 dynamic positioning, oil recovery and fire-fighting systems.
Based on their dimensions, the ships fall into the medium size category of PSVs and have a cargo deck of approximately 850 square metres. They can accommodate 30 persons and keep a speed of around 14.5 knots.
The vessels will be prepared for offshore crane and mezzanine deck for ROV.
According to the Norwegian ship designer Ulstein, all vessels are scheduled for deliveries in 2016.
The contract with Ulstein includes the delivery of design, engineering and main equipment. Ulstein will also deliver integrated control systems, bridge (radio, navigation), switchboard, diesel electric propulsion and frequency converters, and communication systems.
