UAE-based Triangle Marine Services, which provides shipbuilding, ship repair and conversion services, has today achieved a significant milestone with the keel laying of two new Aluminium Fast Offshore Support Vessels, awarded in November 2014 by UAE-based client Marine Core & Charter. These new builds mark the company’s first shipbuilding project to signify their entry into the offshore market.
The ceremony took place at Triangle Marine’s facility in Dubai Maritime City, and was attended by representatives from Triangle Marine, Marine Core & Charter LLC and Camarc Design as well as many representatives from a variety of marine organizations and service providers.
The new 45-metre Aluminium Fast Offshore Support Vessels by UK designers Camarc used their proven innovative hull design to meet the offshore operators’ demand for an extremely efficient support vessel. The hull is designed to optimise the power required to reach speeds of up to 30 knots, combined with excellent sea keeping and a wide operational envelope. The design features a spacious deck area of 140 sqm and large fuel cargo capacity of 100 tonnes. A luxury area for 12 VIP guests to maximise comfort is incorporated along with a seating capacity for 100 personnel. These first two vessels by Triangle Marine will support the Marine Core & Charter fleet and are scheduled for delivery in November 2015.
