Scana Takes Part in Hornbeck Offshore's OSV Building Program

Scana Industrier ASA has signed an agreement with VT Halter Marine, Inc, Pascagoula, Mississippi, USA, for delivery of the main propulsion systems and controls for eight (8) offshore supply vessels (“OSV”).

The equipment deliveries are planned for September 2012 to August 2013. The initial value of the agreement is 67 MNOK. The agreement includes options for similar equipment for up to 24 additional vessels. If all options are exercised this would be the largest contract ever for Scana Volda (a subsidiary of Scana Industrier).

The shipowner is Hornbeck Offshore Services​, Inc (, and the vessels are a part of one of the largest newbuild programs in the market of offshore vessels. The ship design is VT Halters own Super 320 design developed for Hornbeck Offshore, with special attention to the most stringent regulations for environmental concerns, including double-hull, and propulsion machinery in line with the EPA Tier3 requirements. Hornbeck Offshore currently owns a fleet of 80 vessels. The new vessels will operate in the Gulf of Mexico and Latin America.

The propulsion systems are diesel-mechanical configuration, consisting of two Scana controllable pitch propellers driven by Caterpillar main engines connected to Scana reduction gears. The deliveries include Scana control systems.

– Scana is proud to cooperate with VT Halter and Hornbeck Offshore on this new build program. Since 2000 Scana has provided propulsion systems to 25 Hornbeck Offshore vessels, and are excited about continuing this long-lasting relationship. Scanas office in Mandeville, Lousiana will, as a consequense of this agreement, further strengthen it\’s service capability, in order to serve Hornbeck Offshore and other customers operating in the Gulf of Mexico. In addition, Scana has already strenghtened their service capability in Brazil, CEO in Scana Industrier, Rolf Roverud says.
