Acta Marine Ordes Another DP-1 Multi Purpose Workboat

Leading workboat operator Acta Marine is further expanding their fleet with a new MPW with DP-1 and more than 35 Tons bollard pull.

The vessel, which will be named “Coastal Chariot”, is a sister vessel of Acta Marine’s existing DP-1 MPW “Coastal Challenger”.

The MPW has the following main characteristics:

• 35 by 12 meters;

• Propulsion power: 2,380 Kw (2 x fixed pitch propeller in nozzle and 1 azimuth thruster);

• Two azimuthing bowthrusters: 250 kW each;

• 80 Tons anchor handling winch;

• 310 Ton/meter hydraulic deck crane;

• DP-1 classification;

• Accommodation on board for 10 persons.

Coastal Chariot will be the fourth unit within Acta Marine’s fleet of 40 workboats that is equipped with DP. The company was the first owner/operator to apply this technology upon such smaller type workboats. Also unique for a vessel of this power, is the operating draft of only 1.8 meters, making the vessel particularly suitable for operating in ultra-shallow waters and very close to coastlines.

Furthermore, Acta Marine’s DP MPW have a track record of being the most fuel efficient DP MPW in the market.

The vessel is currently under construction in the Netherlands by Maritiem Cluster Friesland. Upon delivery early 2014 the new build vessel will be available for charter.
