Catamaran orders for Norway – Update

13
Dec

13th Dec 2013

The ROVas team have been impressed enough with our design approach and build quality for them to remain on target to order one vessel each year for the foreseeable future.

This is obviously excellent news for BWSeaCat Ltd and the team here look forward to working closely with our Norwegian friends well into future.

BWSeaCat are proud to announce that with the build of the first of two specialist survey Catamarans for Norway based company Neptun Marine Consulting well underway, the company have confirmed that these vessels have the potential to be followed by a further eight of the same design! These builds will be spaced out over a number of years and represent an exciting new avenue for us as a company. The first vessel is to be named ROV 1101 and the second ROV 1102. (see our LINKS page for more details)

7th Dec 2012 Today we can confirm that work has started on the first of two specialist survey vessels for Norway.  These will feature a combination of both full width and Island wheelhouse elements, along with an extended roof, double glazing, full insulation throughout the crew compartments and outboard powering. This latest project is a departure from the norm’ for us as a company and will see us venturing into new and exciting markets, further exploiting and confirming the benefits of our design approach.

1st March 2013 As you can see, today has been a full on day! We have released the first of our vessels for Norway, and the mould will not remain empty long before we start laying up the second one. The extended wheelhouse roof is coming on really well and hopefully will make a smart addition to our moulding capability, giving us the option of various lengths of roof for different applications. Over the next week or so, the major mouldings will be fitted to the hull and we will commence work on the aft ‘control room’ which will house the computer systems required to pilot the ROV. Watch this space for what will hopefully be rapid progress…
