Wilson Sons Ultratug Offshore, a joint venture between Wilson Sons and the Chilean maritime services provider Ultramar, has taken delivery of a platform supply vessel in Brazil.
The delivery was built at Wilson Sons’ shipyard in Guaruja, Brazil and is the first of a two-vessel contract, with the second vessel due for completion later in 2016.
The PSV is 85.25 metres long, with a 19-metre beam, and is to be named ‘Larus’. The vessel has a 920m2 deck area and is equipped with a travelling gantry crane along the work deck to allow storage and movement of deck cargo.
The vessel acquisition is part of the sixth round of the “Program for the Renovation of the Offshore Support Fleet” (Prorefam).
