Norway: Ulstein Launches Blue Prosper PSV

Ulstein Launches New PSV

Norway’s Ulstein Verft yesterday succesfully launched a new PSV, Blue Prosper (Yard no. 294), the second of two medium-sized platform supply vessels (PSV) of the new PX121 design from ULSTEIN® for Blue Ship Invest.

The platform supply vessel was launched from the dock after the final paintwork had been carried out inside the dockhall. The vessel is due for delivery in August this year.

Ulstein Verft was contracted to build the two vessels for Blue Ship Invest, a shipping company in ULSTEIN, at the end of 2010, and the first vessel, M/V Blue Fighter was delivered in January 2011

 The vessel is built with the X-BOW® hull line design, which is particularly well-suited for this type of vessel. The X-BOW offers efficiency over a wide draught range, which is important for PSVs as they frequently operate with varying loads. Moreover, the X-BOW has unique, advantageous qualities in terms of motion and propulsion efficiency in heavy seas. Both the hull and choice of propulsion system make the vessel particularly suited for North Sea and North Atlantic conditions. The vessel is equipped with a dynamic positioning system IMO Class II.

The ship has a length of 83.4 metres and a beam of 18 metres. It has a cargo deck of 875 square metres and a load capacity of 4200 tonnes (dwt). The ship meets the requirements of DNV’s Clean Design notation and is prepared for fire-fighting class Fi-Fi II. It has a maximum speed of circa 15 knots and modern accommodation for 24 persons.
