Oceana Offshore to Build Two ULSTEIN-Designed PSVs

The Brazilian shipowning company Oceana Offshore will be building two platform supply vessels (PSV) with an option for two additional vessels based on the PX105 design from ULSTEIN.

The vessels will be built at the new yard, Oceana Shipyard in Itajai, Brazil, and are scheduled for delivery in April and May 2016, respectively.

“Oceana Offshore decided to go for our proven PX105 design. Our contract with Oceana includes designs and an extended main equipment package, as well as engineering and purchase support,” says Senior Business Advisor Erik Andreassen in Ulstein Design & Solutions, continuing:

“We are grateful for the trust placed in us and look forward to entering this project together with a new and future-oriented partner. We wish to thank the teams from both sides that have been working hard together over a long period in order to finally enter into this agreement. We believe Oceana Offshore will be satisfied with their new vessels.”

“We are very pleased to have Ulstein Design & Solutions as the designer of the first vessels to be built in our new shipyard in Itajai. Hopefully it will be a start of a long-lasting partnership between our companies,” says Oceana Shipyard’s CEO, Paul Kempers.

The vessels for Oceana are purposed for work in the Brazilian oil industry.

The PX105 design is a large platform supply vessel with accommodation for 23 people. The vessels will be 88.9 metre long and 19 metre wide. With a DWT of 4,700 tonnes they comply with Petrobras’ PSV 4500 tender. These vessels have a high operational window and can take on complex assignments far from shore. They come with the X-BOW® hull line design feature, in which slamming and abrupt stops from waves are eliminated. The vessels are cost-effective and fuel-saving, and the crews get more efficient rest, which also increase safety.

“Oceana Offshore S.A. is funded by the solid investment and engineering partners P2 Brazil and BNDES. Their yard, Oceana Shipyard, is currently under construction in Itajai in the region of Santa Catarina, which is a maritime cluster of yards and related businesses,” comments Erik Andreassen.
