14 Jun 2012

STX OSV Holdings says that it has entered into a Letter of Intent with Troms Offshore for the design and construction of a platform supply vessel, to STX’s PSV07 design, which Troms will charter to Statoil.

Confirmation of the contract is expected by the end of June. The hull will be built at STX OSV in Romania, for completion by STX in Norway. Delivery is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2013.

The PSV 07 design is for a Clean Class environmentally friendly diesel electric ship with a focus on low fuel consumption and low emission of greenhouse gases. At 94.5m long and 21m wide, a free deck space of 1,170m² and 5,700dwt capacity, this is one of the largest PSVs in the market.

STX OSV already has one PSV under construction for Troms Offshore. Troms Offshore operates a fleet comprising 11 ships from its home port in Tromsø in northern Norway. The company is in the process of expanding its fleet of large, environmentally friendly ships for operations in the North Sea and in arctic waters.
