The offshore service provider and ship owner OPUS MARINE GmbH based in Hamburg is enlarging it’s fleet of Crew Transfer Vessels (CTV) by the addition of one newbuild vessel named „LARGO“ to a total of five CTVs.
This modern CTV is designed by the well known ship designer BMT Nigel Gee and was built by the French ship builder Piriou in Vietnam. It is of 27.4 m length over all and aims for the transport of offshore technicians and cargoes in the rough conditions of the European offshore wind energy industry. The vessel features Hamilton Water Jet propulsion that speed up the vessel to a top speed of 27+ knots and it is equipped with an own crane for up to 10 tons and cargo capacities for 2 x 10‘ containers on the fore deck and one 10‘ container on the aft deck. Its large fuel tank capacities allow a maximum endurance at sea. For survey and underwater works an A-frame has been fitted at the aft of the vessel.
During the construction of the vessel utmost concentration was spent on the sound and vibration dampening and the equipment handling to achieve highest comfort standards for the passengers and the crew during the transit.
The vessel will be delivered to OPUS MARINE in Rotterdam coming March 2015.
