GONDAN delivered the PSV Stril Mar
Yesterday, Gondan Shipyard has delivered its new PSV to the Norwegian shipowner Simon Møkster Shipping.
The vessel, which left Figueras facilities recently, is now on her way to the North Sea, after successfully completing her extensive sea trial tests program, involving vessel managers, shipowner technical supervisors, main suppliers and class society inspectors.
The new PSV Vessel, with UT 776 WP “Wave Piercing” Rolls Royce Marine design, has a length of 92m and beam of 20m. Although she was built based on “Stril Luna” design -delivered in 2014 to the same Ship-Owner company-, as a difference this new unit has a FiFi II system, with monitors installed at the stern, allowing much safer and more efficient fire fighting operation in offshore facilities.
Moreover, unlike her predecessor, this new unit has a higher De-Icing class notation. The ship is also equipped with the RRM “Unified Bridge”, placing the vessel control board as one of the most modern in the world today.
This new PSV is the third unit built by Gondan Shipyard for the Norwegian Ship-Owner, which in 2011 received from the Shipyard the Stril Merkur Vessel, a PSV of 97 meters length, and in August 2014, Stril Luna, with 92.80 meters length. Both are operating for Oil Platforms at the North Sea, chartered by Statoil.
