Singapore based shipping company, Toisa Ltd, has signed a contract with Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) for the construction of a multipurpose offshore construction vessel (MOCV), designed by Norway’s Ulstein.

Ulstein says the vessel, which has been developed for maximum efficiency and cost effectiveness, is the first with x-bow hull line design to be built in Korea and is a customised version of its Deepwater Enabler design.

The DP3 vessel has been designed for worldwide operations in the oil and gas sector, ultra deepwater installation and construction, flexible lay, pipelay, cable lay and topside construction support. Its design also for more flexibility towards changing market requirements and serve alternative subsea and offshore markets in the future.

Bram Lambregts, marketing and sales manager, Ulstein Sea of Solutions, said: ‘What makes this vessel unique is that it is developed with future requirements in mind. The good and very close cooperation with Toisa and HHI resulted in a very versatile vessel design.”

Main propulsion will be provided by three stern azimuthing thrusters powered by a diesel electric plant of six main generators. Vessel speed will be optimised to provide a fast transit speed between locations, while giving maximum endurance.

The Toisa MOCV will be also be equipped with a fully Active Heavy Compensated (AHC) offshore crane rated at 900 tonnes safe working load (SWL), a kunckleboom crane of 200 tonnes SWL and a fully integrated vessel management and control system.
