The two new 42-m (138-ft) vessels are a response, the company says, to growing demand in the oil and gas sector for faster crew/supply boats to increase operational efficiencies. They will assist in the safe and fast transfer of offshore personnel, cargo and liquid payloads.
Both vessels, built by the Grand Weld shipyard in Dubai, were custom-built to ISS’ specifications. The FNSA 3 and FNSA 4 have a 75-seat passenger capacity and can operate virtually anywhere in the world, according to charter demand.
Each boat has been equipped with the latest navigation equipment, ISS adds, along with satellite communication and weather monitoring systems. Other features include D-fendering, h2s monitoring systems (important when working close to oil and gas platforms), aircraft-type seating and a fresh water generator.
Both vessels have already been chartered for projects offshore Abu Dhabi.
