The design is a smaller PSV that can support barges and rigs in a more economical way than the traditional offshore support vessel, both in terms of building cost and operational costs. The work deck is enclosed by plate-covered crash barriers providing increased safety for crew and cargo. The discharge systems have been designed for the safe and efficient loading and discharging of several dry and wet bulk cargoes simultaneously. DP2 and automation systems for machinery and cargo handling will contribute to safe and efficient vessel operation.
