Scaldis orders offshore construction vessel

February 19 - Scaldis Salvage & Marine Contractors has placed an order with Royal OHC for a self-propelled DP2 crane ship with a lifting capacity of 4,000 tonnes.

Scaldis designed the new vessel in-house in cooperation with Vuyk Engineering Rotterdam, part of Royal IHC. Delivery of the vessel, which has the provisional name Rambiz 4000, is scheduled for spring 2017. The vessel will be built in Qidong, China, before being finished in Xiamen.

The ship has ben ordered to support and expand Scaldis' capabilities in the offshore sector, including the installation/decommission of oil and gas infrastructure and wind farms.

The ship is equipped with two Huisman cranes each with a lifting capacity of 2,000 tonnes. The cranes can be moved by 25 m along the length of the vessel, which creates a larger deck space to transport cargoes.

The ship and the cranes are of an integrated design, which allows the maximum load to be hoisted in significant wave heights of up to 1.5 m. The maximum load can be lifted in water depths of around 5 m.

The four azimuth thrusters and the DP2 system allow installation work to be conducted in deeper water without the use of anchors. The ship is also equipped with four main working anchors and winches and four secondary devices.
