Naming ceremony of GONDAN’s new PSV
Today, at Gondan Shipyard in Figueras the New PSV for the Norwegian Ship-Owner, Simon Møkster Shipping, has been named as STRIL MAR.
The event was attended by the CEO of the Owner, Anne Jorunn Møkster, accompanied by other members of the Management of the Ship-Owner company; as well as representatives from the Shipyard and Main Suppliers.
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.
