Utility Vessels are much smaller versions of SSVs but without cargo tanks for drilling fluids or cement. UVs primarily operate in shallow water and are typically used to transport deck cargo, fuel, fresh water, food provisions and personnel.
These vessels are used to support offshore oil rigs, platforms and other installations and to tow mobile structures and position their mooring anchors in order to ensure their anchors are placed in a proper position.
Our AHT/AHTSs have a bollard pull that ranges from 40 to 100 tonnes and horsepower engines ranging from 3,200 to 8,000 BHP which are suitable to operate in shallow water fields.
The defining characteristics of AHT/AHTS are their engine power, measured in BHP and the size of their winches in terms of line pull and wire storage capacity. AHT/AHTS also possess large aft decks which are utilised during anchor handling and towing operations and for the carriage of deck cargo. The stern of the vessel is open to the sea, with a stern roller fitted to enable the vessel to recover and deploy anchors, while maintaining a clear area for the vessel's work wire.
SSVs primarily operate in shallow water. Our SSVs are primarily used for the transportation of equipment, cargo pipe, drilling fluids, cement, fuel and fresh water from supply bases to offshore platforms and facilities.
PSVs are capable of working in deep water conditions and serves various types of drilling rigs and platforms, including drill ships, fixed platforms, FPSOs and semi-submersible rigs. Our PSV is equipped with a DP2 system, enabling it to accurately manoeuvre and operate in adverse weather conditions.
AWBs are primarily used to support offshore construction and IMR activity..
