Construction of the first Platfom Supply Vessel in a series of two such ships ordered in the Remontowa Shipbuilding yard by Borealis Maritime has been completed. The Coey Viking PSV will be operated under the technical management of Shipowner Viking Supply Ships AB.
On 18 January 2021, the PSV was handed over to the Shipowner and after mobilisation will soon begin its regular service in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.
The Coey Viking is designed to operate in the offshore oil&gas industry and meets the highest environmental standards. She is powered by LNG or MGO in the gas-electric propulsion system.
In addition, the ship has been equipped with a battery pack, which ranks her very high among the most modern vessels with electric hybrid propulsion. The battery pack allows her to significantly reduce fuel consumption and emissions of harmful substances into the atmosphere, and to match the noise standards restrictions when in port.
The Coey Viking is equipped with a DP system with demanding weather parameters, which ensures that the vessel’s position is maintained in winds in excess of 35 knots and wave heights of up to 4 m. The vessel is also fitted with a fire fighting system classified as Fi-Fi -2 as well as an oil spill fighting system certified to NOFO regulations.
The vessel is built to the upgraded Wärtsilä VS 4411 DF design, under the surveillance of the classification society DNV-GL.
