Ulstein-designed ‘CBO Ipanema’ delivered to CBO

The Brazilian built ‘CBO Ipanema’, a platform supply vessel of the PX105 design from Ulstein, was delivered to CBO on 7 June 2014.

She will be operating for Petrobras on an eight-year contract. The ship is the final and fourth in a series of this design built for CBO at Alianca Estaleiros in Niteroi, Rio de Janeiro.

With the current trend of oil and gas production taking place ever further from land, the demand for large PSVs is increasing. ‘CBO Ipanema’ complies with the Petrobras 4500 tender for a flexible transportation of bulk and general cargo to installations offshore. She carries product specific tanks as well as hybrid tanks for dry bulk. She is 88.9 metres long and has a total capacity of 4,500 tonnes.

The contract with Ulstein includes the deliveries of design, engineering, main equipment, the automation, bridge (radio, navigation) and communication systems as well as commissioning.

CBO, Companhia Brasileira de Offshore, currently owns a total of six PSVs featuring the characteristic and patented X-BOW®, which secures smooth movements in head seas. Designed by Ulstein, four are carrying the large PX105 design, two the smaller PX106 design.
