Singapore’s Otto Marine Limited has sold an Anchor Handling Tug Supply Vessel for a $100 million.
The vessel is currently under construction at Otto’s shipyard in Batam, Indonesia and will be handed over to the undisclosed buyer following the completion of legal documentation and a final inspection.
DNV classed and Norwegian-designed, the VS491 21,000bhp AHTS is a hybrid propulsion diesel electric driven vessel with dynamic positioning 2 (DP2) technology. It measures 91.5m in length and 22.5m wide and has a bollard pull of 240 to 260 tonnes.
