Grandweld deliver crew boats to Fujairah National Group
Grandweld Shipyards has completed the delivery of two 33.5m aluminum crew boats for Fujairah National Group.
FNSA 1 and FNSA 2, sister vessels of the 33.5m class boats, are an optimised version of the successful in-house design that is built to assist in fast transfer of offshore personnel, deck cargo and liquid payload.
The vessels will be operated by Inchcape Shipping Services LLC in different regions worldwide. FNSA 1 is currently working on a project in Mozambique in the East African coast, while FNSA 2 is currently working in Dubai.
Each vessel has a 50-passenger seating capacity and is powered by three high-speed diesel engines driving three fixed-pitch propellers to produce speeds in excess of 25 knots. The design was driven to optimise speed and seaworthiness in order to ensure swift transfer of personnel while maximising crew comfort.
Meanwhile, Grandweld has been awarded a repeat order from Zamil Offshore, to build a new 33.5m fast aluminum crew boat. This will be Zamil’s fourth order to Grandweld Shipyards after the successful delivery of three sister vessels in 2012.
The vessel is scheduled for delivery in June 2014.
